If the component files will only be used within this new chapter, you could have saved a step by choosing the Copy Into Document rather than the Import By Reference option in the File Import dialog. This saves you the step of converting the text insets to text after importing because it imports the file in that form to begin with.
But if the component files will continue to be used independently as well as in this composite chapter, you may be better off keeping them as insets so that changes only need to be made in one place. My opinions only; I don't speak for Intel.

Recently, I had the task of bringing the chapters of one Frame book into a single chapter of another Frame book. It wasn't a big task, so I did this: 1. Created the file that would serve as the chapter in the target book. 2. Imported the chapters of the source book as text insets. 3. Converted the insets into text. 4. Add the file to the target book. Are there more efficient options for performing this task? Thanks... --Milan
