I agree, it would be a useful feature. As of right now, the
only way to do that would be "the hard way". :) That would
be opening an AbiWord document in your favorite text editor
and inserting the contents of the file into the AbiWord file,
then opening the file in AbiWord to clean up or add any
formatting (paragraph breaks, etc.).
Certainly, the Insert menu should have a "File" option for
some future release.
Do I hear any takers on wanting to implement this feature?
