Is there a way to take the store a FM Chart into a container field?
Well, as I write this I realize I can export a PDF and then import that into a container.
But maybe there is another way.
One thing I have done (some time ago, so there may be a better way now) was to use GetLayoutObjectAttribute ( ):

Use the content attribut to return the bitmap.
That worked.... THANKS!
GetLayoutObjectAttribute() gets a bitmap (PNG) representation of the chart, with a fixed resolution.
In order to get a vector (PDF) image that can be enlarged without pixelation, create a layout that contains only the chart. Then go to this layout, enter Preview mode and do Copy.
Tested in v.17 on macOS - could be different when run in Windows.
