Responses

Hello,
First of all, thanks for you tool.

I would like to insert the same text in several templates. This text doesn't often evolve but instead of copying the same text in many templates and have to change it manually everywhere from time to time, i would prefer to insert it as a template in templates where it has to appear, in order to only have to change it in one place when necessary.
Is it yet possible ? Could you implement that soon as a macro ?
Thanks.
