Hi

on my macintosh the x and y coordinates of the position of the content (an image) in a Graphics frame is show relative to the frame. On my PC the same content of a Graphics frame is shown relative to the x and y coordinates of the page. Can I change this on the PC to behave in a more logical manner - as the macintosh?

In the Transform panel's fly-out, check 'Show content offset':

Thanks Peter, and I thought I'd looked everywhere!
With that pointer I've now assigned the top left axis point to the default rectangle frame tool and any image opens 0mm 0mm as I want - oddly though if I create a box usingthe 'Rectangle Tool' frame tool (with default set to 'Basic Graphics Frame') and place an image it works. If I create a  as I wish. If I create a box using the 'Rectangle Frame Tool' (with default set to 'Basic Graphics Frame') - it defaults to 'None' and doesn't work

How strange. . . No idea how to deal with that.

I've always liked the 'Rectangle frame tool' on master pages for image placement as they are easy to see. Looks like I'll have to change my work practices (on pc) and start using the 'Rectangle tool'. I'll have to check on my mac tomorrow and see why/how it behaves differently.
