We're long-time users of the AutoText plugin and it has saved us countless hours and much aggravation.

It's this sort of thing that caused me to create the Auto-Text plug-in. At the time, the template I was using had anchored frames for hints, warnings, database tasks, multicurrency tasks, as well as various in-line anchored frames for special characters like the "pretzel" key for the Macintosh. It drove all of the writers crazy having to manually add these each time. That's where Auto-Text comes in. You can define the content exactly as you want it to appear in your document. Then you copy it into the AutoText.fm document to define the AutoText entry. Give it a name, and a keyboard shortcut (optional). Then, when you want to use the item, just place the insertion point in your document, and choose the item from the AutoText menu (or use the keyboard shortcut). Auto-Text will copy the item from the AutoText.fm document, and paste it into your current document. You have a lot of flexibility when defining the AutoText items. You can use anchored frames with referenced graphics, using relative paths. When you insert the Auto-Text entry, the relative paths are preserved. If you need to change a graphic, you can just swap it out like you would any other reference Frame graphic. You can even create AutoText entries that reference content on a Reference page. A single-user license is only $10. You can download the plug-in at the Silicon Prairie web site (http://www.siliconprairiesoftware.com). It's fully-functional, but will periodically display registration reminders. You can try it out at no cost to see if it would help you with your issue.
