Yeah, if I was looking to move away from FrameMaker for the reasons
you are, Flare would be the one to beat. Its FrameMaker import is
excellent so if your docs are tagged consistently the transition is

Yes and it looks excellent, but it only works with structured Frame.
The jump from unstructured to structured Frame is quite significant.

We are using insets for reuse (and we use unstructured FM12). So for content
that is used in multiple places, we make it into a text inset and then we can
edit in one place and use it in multiple places.
We log the insets in a spreadsheet by fm file name, topic title, writer, and

Could you describe the end result? It's not exactly clear what you're
trying to accomplish. Are you generating multiple versions of a
document with different sets of insets? If so, how many documents and
how many insets?
Generally speaking, I would not try to do that with unstructured
And to whoever is seriously using this to manage 50-100+ insets and do it
well, please share the drugs...

I'm looking for a FrameScript named MoveMarkers. It was mentioned here:
But the link no longer works. Is this script still available and, if so, where?
In several posts recently, Framers have mentioned using Frame as a CMS with
text insets. We are using text insets in Frame, but we're really struggling
with the CMS part. We are "managing" the insets in a spreadsheet and that is
not very effective and takes quite a bit of maintenance.
I don't have time to test this right now, but try this:
1) In your text inset, make sure you have a cross-reference marker in the
appropriate target paragraph.
2) Import the text inset into the container document.
3) When insert the cross-reference, make sure you choose the container
Probably you need to do cross reference to paragraph where text inset is
inserted. That will bring the actual page number with heading.
Hope I understood your problem correctly.
Using Framemaker 2015 (latest patch 3 installed) on Windows.
We want to use Framemaker as a little CMS: big container book file with about 5
Frame container files with a lot of text inset files.
Is there any way to display the page number of the position of a text inset in
