Small sections and Equations in Framemaker as stand-alone references

I am very new to frameMaker, I know that you can create a file, add it to several books, and when you change the file it also will change in all the books. I also know you can reference to a single picture in several books and do the same. 

If I want to write up a small section that is used throughout multiple books (NOT as a whole page, just a paragraph or so) OR if I type up an Equation that I want to use in several books that I may have to edit later on, and want to automatically update, can this be done? Can I save them somehow as stand-alone files and not as a whole page and have these pull in as references in FrameMaker?

Hi @Siara33297128jr0v:

 

Yes. Take a look at text insets:

"A text inset is used to insert content from an external source into a FrameMaker document. The text inset feature of FrameMaker allows you to easily reuse text across documents and books. You can store such reusable content in an external document (such as a text file or FrameMaker document), and then import the content across one or more documents."

Give it a shot and come back if you have any follow-up questions.

For equations in particular, I wouldn't be surprised if one can't author it in an external MathML editor, then import that either as an XML object, or from a TextInset.fm that contains it.
