Thank you very much, your guess was good :-)
I pasted a new card without any objects on it, and I discovered in  
the Place menu items that I had 2 groups with the same name "frame2" !
I deleted one and now it works nicely, just as it works with my  

Éric, thanks again for your answer ; I am noting the idea of  a  
workaround you suggested in my personal doc. ; I don't resort enough  
to "mark card"

Best regards from Grenoble
