Can a graphic be anchored to a line of text but be OUTSIDE the text frame?

The idea here is to have a symbol that helps the reader find key statements but I want it to be outside the text box. I know I could indent ALL the text to kind of fake the margin, but I already have indents going 7 levels deep on a book with a two-column page, so I'd rather not sacrifice space nor do I want to have to adjust all the indents for each tag to compensate. Is this something that can be done in FM, or am I asking too much here?

Yes. Look at your Anchored Frame panel under Insert.

Just as David Creamer shows, with Distance from Text Frame.

In my case, I edit a standards document, and I annotate each change with an anchored frame in the margin that shows the issue number relating to the change.

Sounds great, but I'm not seeing any blue boxes, just the black frame of the picture box.

In which version of FrameMaker do you  work? In FM-16 (2020) I have only the 6 corner black  handles as before. And the Anchored Object Options dialogue does not exist in this form.

Also in FM it is not possible to have coloured borders and coloured text symbols (an old  whish of me!)
