Figure deletes itself if I backspace in a figure caption.

Jan 28, 2014 1:22 PM

A bug or me?

 

The steps:

 

  1. Tag a paragraph as Anchor.
  2. Insert and resize a photo at the anchor.
  3. Cut the photo and delete the frame.
  4. Paste the photo.
  5. Create a Figure Caption underneath the image.
  6. Start typing the caption.

 

If I backspace while typing the caption, the picture and frame are deleted. If I Undo the deletion, I can backspace in the caption without the figure deleting itself. Any ideas?

 

Thank you.

    Which version (point release) of FrameMaker and which operating system?

     

    What are trying do with steps 3 & 4?? Seems completely unnecessary.

     

    Are you inserting the figure caption paragraph after the anchored one or is it in the aframe with the graphic?

     

    Do you have your Text Symbols visible?

    I tried duplicating this behaviour, but I don't get the graphic and anchor frame being deleted.

     

    FYI, the esc m p shortcut will shrinkwrap the aframe to the graphic [it will also change the aframe At Insertion Point, which can easily be changed back to Below Current Line].

     

    You might also want to have a look at Russ Ward's utilities (WS Utilities Plugin) which has the features that you're trying to use for fitting your graphics.
