> Have you tried using text insets for reused content, instead of copy and paste?

Hmm.. thatâs an idea. But a bit much overhead for something that wonât always be a duplicated chunk. The use case Iâm working with is what Word actually handles quite well: *moving* content. So although the copy/paste thing makes it seem like a text inset is appropriate, itâs actually unnecessary because Iâm deleting the original. But I didnât say that.

But itâs good to hear (or infer and hope that itâs true) that track changes will show in a text inset because Iâm using text insets for lots of things, and lots will be edited for this release.

Thanks for the pointer!
