Thanks for your help.

I can't get to the properties palette!  I can't get a red border 
on any frame. The text block in question is the one at the 
top of the right, saying "Uncorrected Proof".  An 
afterthought, It made it through 360 Digital and Lulu without 
complaint but CreateSpace felt that the text was too close 
to the bleed.

I found that newer and older versions of the same sla file 
don't have this difficulty, just new3.sla. So it is something 
peculiar to that particular file. Therefore I can work around 

Despite all warnings to the contrary, I have been using the 
bleeding edge 1.5.0 version on nightly download to take 
advantage of all the latest features. Finally my 
adventuresome flight on the bleeding edge has punished
