Subject:Re: QUESTION: Urgent Frame Help From:Tim Altom <taltom -at- IQUEST -dot- NET> Date:Tue, 16 Dec 1997 21:12:17 -0500
Hey, I don't remember anybody asking if the graphic was linked, not
embedded, or what kind of graphic it was. Was this graphic actually linked
from the first? If so, there could be another problem with the combination
of graphic type and link type. What were the conditions? It sounds like the
doc itself is fine, and that the environment is good. And if the graphic
sticks and prints when it's copied and pasted, then it works when embedded,
so the graphic has to be good. How about some more details?
