Subject Re: first x-value not anchored to y-axis
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2012 11:18:08 GMT

On the subject of "Anchoring" I have been creating a 16 page brochure 
for my company.   This has involved copying background pictures and text 
boxes with shaded, partly transparent backgrounds etc.   I often have to 
move backgrounds from one page to another but each time, the "anchor to" 
becomes a major problem as it changes and each item has to be manually 
changed to "page", which is very time consuming.   Is there a way to 
either set this permanently or deactivate it for the current session?

Kind regards
