Alignment issues for graphic files in DITA topics

Normally the anchored frame around an imported graphic is just a placeholder for that graphic. But in one of my current projects, a set of small graphic files is represented in a table that explains usage for each of the symbols depicted. The customer wants to have the graphics displayed in the middle of the cell, not at the bottom or top. Normally I would make the anchored frame as large as the table cell and align the graphic inside that anchored frame. But the anchored frame information is lost when writing the DITA file to disk. This might be a behaviour of the DITA client or something that cannot be done in FM.

 

If anyone has experience with this and knows which combination of read-write rules and other settings are required, let me know. I could write a script to correct positioning of the graphics in the table but if some settings can do the job that saves me a bunch of time.
