If a shape is anchored to a frame, then changing the anchoring of the frame will result in the shape becoming hidden (with no obvious way to make it visible again).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open New Document
2. Insert a Frame
3. Insert Shape(s) (e.g., Rectange, Textbox) in the Frame
4. Change anchor of the Shape to ‟To Frame”
5. Change the anchor of the Frame (does not matter which, just that it is a change).
1. Copy the Frame (with the hidden Shape(s))
2. Paste the Frame
1. Change the anchor of this new copied frame (to anything else)
Part 1: The shape(s) become hidden (with no obvious way to get them back.)
NB. The Navigator shows shows the Shape(s) under Drawing objects (but grayed out).
Part 2: The hidden shapes are back.
Part 3: The shapes are hidden again.
Shapes that are anchored to a frame should remain visible when the anchoring of the frame is changed.
User Profile Reset: No
1. Only happens with Shapes. Did not happen with Images, Frames, OLE Objects.
2. Only happens when Shapes are anchored to frame. Other anchors of Shapes are not affected by changing the anchor of the Frame.
I confirm it with

- If you press undo after step 5, shape is again visible and it is possibel to change anchor of the frame (shape remains visible)
- If you doesn't change anchor of shape "To Frame" you can change anchor of frame without loosing the shape

I had to undo twice to get the shape visible again -- but then it was anchored "to paragraph". (It did not reappear after doing undo once). Are you sure that after "undo" the shape was still anchored "to frame"? If so, then this would appear to be a difference between 22.214.171.124.alpha1 (x64) and 126.96.36.199.

For sake of clarity, I think this is the same as point #2 of additional information in the initial report.
