Hi all,

I suppose something in the read/write rules has changed, but before digging into the issue I thought I'd ask the forum.

We have migrated from FM2015 to 2017 and now images in paragraphs display very small. As you can see in the screenshot, this image is about 50pt wide but the size properties are ignored. Manual resizing is lost when the file is saved. Any ideas?

Have you checked to make sure your structured application is being used and is using your width attribute to size the image?

We found out that it wasn't the R/W rules, but rather FM2017 interprets a style setting of the anchor paragraph different than 2015 (and the previous versions) did. We had to remove the setting for a fixed line height as shown below.

Matt, yes it worked, kind of.

When I get rid of the "Fixed Line Space" setting for "Figure Anchor" para style in FM2017 I do not get any tiny-dot size images anymore when I import AI-format images through File>Import>File.

But I do not get a single-size column-width image either.

The width and size of the image varies, depending on the paragraph style that anchors the image but as long as I don't get any pin-head small images I can live with that. Many thanks for the follow up. Appreciate it.

P.S. I can't help but wonder how does FM2017 decide what the final size of the imported AI image should be, as a function of the para style settings?
