Structured FrameMaker – Using Text Insets in EDD
Text insets in Adobe FrameMaker enable re-use of content. You can import a document into another document as a reference and update the content when the source document changes.
You can also use text insets in EDD – enabling you to re-use context level formatting rules and elements across elements and structured applications. First step is to identify the re-usable component. Once you have identified the re-usable component (for example, an element definition as shown in the Adobe Captivate demo below), you can do the following –
- Copy the re-usable component (element definition, here) from an existing EDD
- Go to reference pages
- Insert a text frame
- Paste the element definition in the new text frame
- Add a tag to text frame
- Come back to Body Pages
- Select the element and delete it
- Import the element definition from the same EDD. Please select reference flow and tag name of the text frame to identify the content.
You have created a re-usable element definition. Same can be repeated for context level formatting rules. Please see the Adobe Captivate demo below.
