Hi all, Am on FM 7.1, structured (more or less coz I haven't defined a proper template/EDD yet). In brief, I'm currently writing a user guide for an OpenSource ETL process designer. This designer allows me to use components to compose ETL process flowcharts. In one chapter of this guide, I detailed each component and in particular the component's specific property parameters. This chapter is divided into section per component and subsections for properties and use case scenario. Then within the properties subsection, the actual properties are organised in a table which differs more or less from one component to the other. I want to be able to reuse the content of part of the component properties table for another component which has almost the same properties although some differ... The idea behind this, being obviously to ease the maintenance and update of the component properties chapter... I have never been very familiar with text insets but I thought this could be the right solution for this...But I am unable to import a specific part of a data flow from one section to another in the same FM file... anyone can help me on this? Maybe the text inset option isn't the right solution for this, as it is structured document? I hope my question isn't to messy.
