    Wow. I’m curi­ous, does this UB ver­sion alo crash for sure when you apply text wrap to an illus­tra­tion and move it around a 2 column-textfield that is set to lock on base­line­grid? It sure as h*ll crash­es the Passport ver­sion of Xpress 7. I can’t believe they did’nt test this. I mean: text, tex­twrap en 3 colums. That’s what I use every­day.

    There are bugs and BUGS. Crashing an app ‘on com­mand’ by doing day to day things like adjust­ing the posi­tion of a frame with runaround is a BUG

    Macteach is right. And what about you Peter? You don’t feel like this is a seri­ous BUG? You don’t use tex­twrap or what?
