Actually, Marty, the main difference is that Rev only "locks" the new size
of the image when you specifically ask it to, whereas Word locks the new
size of the image automatically. In both cases, the "original size" version
is still available to get to, but Rev requires an extra step. So for example
if Rev automatically set the lockLoc on the image after you resized it,
you'd get the same behavior as in Word.

Personally, I think that the lockLoc property is doing double-duty when
there should really be a different property altogether. If we has something
like the "hScale" and "vScale" of an image, and have Rev not resize the
image to its 100% size unless another graphic were inserted into the image
(new 'filename'), and left the lockLoc alone so it could truly be used for
locking the ability to resize or move the object, then we'd get closer to
what *I* would expect as 'expected behavior'.
Just my 2 cents,
