Include a template into another template

With the Insert template macro, you can create building blocks, that you can reuse in other templates.

Store any piece of that that you want to reuse in a template and then recall it by using the macro.

Doing so, you can update a single template and all the other templates will contain the updated version automatically.

To include a specific template into another template

1

In the Quick edit or Template editor right-click in the place where you want to insert the template and click on Data→ Insert template

2

Find the template that you want by typing in the search box. Select it and click OK.

3

If the selected template doesn't already have it, PhraseExpander asks you to assign the Id to the template.

4

PhraseExpander adds a new macro in the current template.

To include a template from a group (based on position or random)

1

In the Quick edit or Template editor right-click in the place where you want to insert the template and click on Data→ Insert template

2

Click on Search by glossary / group name to choose the group containing the templates you want (PhraseExpander will show the templates contained in the chosen group and all the child groups).

3

The macro will return a specific template or a random one in the list (the random option can be useful, for example, when you want to slightly change your wording to add variations to your notes).

4

PhraseExpander adds a new macro in the current template.

NOTE: when you include a template via the insert macro, the variables defined in the included template will be available for use in the hosting template as well.
