I have a rare but recurring issue with Text Lines added to graphics (FM 10, Windows 7 64-bit).
Occasionally, when I add text lines (labels) to a linked graphic and click save, FM will delete seemingly random characters from the text. Its tough to catch unless you are expecting it, which you almost never are.
Has anyone else seen this? Might there be a fix?

A workaround, certainly: put the text in a Text Frame in the anchored frame that contains the imported graphic. And I'm assuming that by "linked" graphic you mean imported.
I've never seen this happen, but then I primarily use FM7, and haven't used the GText tool for years, because it has so many limitations from a text stewardship standpoint.
Does the character indeed get deleted, with the remaining text collapsing into its space, or is it converted to a space, or just sent to back, hidden behind the graphic?
This happened to me in FrameMaker 11 (windows) and our engineer caught it in a PDF I created. I was hoping to find a workaround and will try adding a text frame inside the graphic frame. I use these a lot to add callouts explaining parts of screenshots.
