Converting 7.2 to 2015 -> 'original filter not available' message -> strange borders on table and anchored frames

I just converted my 7.2 files to FM 2015 and got some 'At least one original filter ... graphics imported by reference ... not available ..' messages.

When I looked at these files, I found that many anchored frames had heavy black borders that I could not change and some tables had strange thick cross-hatch borders that I similarly could not find information about.  I'm guessing this is some kind of error condition report but have not been able to find any information about fixing it.

The affected files tend to be older ones originating before FM 7.2

Any ideas about how to approach this?  See pictures.

I'm thinking both are conditional text indicators. Fm has always used cross-hatching for table cells. 2015 uses a border color as well on anchored frames.

You can control Conditional text at the book level now as well, so hiding these is an easy fix: FrameMaker 2015: Conditional Text at book level | Adobe Technical Communication Suite 2015 | Adobe TV .

As far as I remember, the aggressive border of exes [cf Cheval de frise - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia​] is a conditional indicator at table level. I'm not totally sure, because I find it so unpleasing I only mark cells or sometimes the table caption :-}

No idea about the heavy borders on graphics; I'll watch this thread and learn.
