Couldn't the text inset files be included as parts of a book (either a dummy 
book, or files that would be excluded from the final book)? Then such updates 
become searchable as part of that book.

I will verify the correct answer for you and post it here soon. Sorry that your 
Q didn’t get answered. We had well over 100 Qs between chat and the Q/A pod,
 so we answered as many as we can.
I believe the answer is “no” due to technical limitations of insets, but I will 
verify that.
FYI – if/when you upgrade to XML, you can use XPath in FrameMaker 11/12, which 
will search through all XML files in a folder, including sub folders.

My question was ignored many times during the webinar. Do the search 
enhancements include finding matches in included files? Currently, the only way 
I can search for strings in my books that single-source included files is to 
generate a
 PDF and search in it.

I'm especially excited about the search with regular expressions. If that helps 
me easily modify the markers I'm inserting using Shlomo Peret's Form Assist, 
that will be a huge TimeSaver for me (pun intended).

Max, maybe you can schedule a webinar by Shlomo highlighting this use of that
