Yes, Word has multiple methods for this. You don't need SmartDocs.

More generally: Whenever someone answers you can't do something in Word that you can do in other programs, wait to see who answers next.

Bonus giggle: The Wikipedia article for FrameMaker has a section called "Alternatives and Competition," which lists about half a dozen other programs - but not Word.

No. There's an add-on called SmartDocs.
