A text inset is used to insert content from an external source into a FrameMaker document. The text inset feature of FrameMaker allows you to easily reuse text across documents and books. You can store such reusable content in an external document (such as a text file or FrameMaker document), and then import the content across one or more documents.
You import plain text from a text file or you can import text and formatted content from a FrameMaker document (.fm or .mif).
Use the Insets pod to work with text and graphic insets in your documents. From this pod, you can import insets into a document, view inset properties, or delete insets from a document.
To open the Insets Tags pod, from the View menu, choose Pods > Insets.
The Inset pod displays the list of insets in the current document.
To sort the list of insets, click a column header in the list. For example, you can sort by the referenced file or page number.
To resize a column:
1)Hover the mouse between two columns until the cursor is a bi-directional arrow.
2)Hold down the left mouse button, drag, and release the mouse button when the column is sized as required.
