I give up, how do I insert another Writer file into the current file? When I search online, the answer generally is "Insert > File" or "Insert > Document", but in Writer 6.1, there's no File or Document option in the Insert menu.

One way is to InsertSection, and choose [x] Link and select the file.

More a comment than a solution.

I found ebot's solution after quite a bit of searching - having deliberately not tried Insert>Paste text from file because the file I wanted to include was a writer document that contained images as well as text.

What's wrong with Insert>Post content from Writer file?

I understand that one might want to import text from any sort of file, and that there are defined OLE object file types, but surely the current case is one that crops up a lot, and could have its own menu item. ??

In 6.1, it should now read something like: Insert>Paste text from file ...

With a folder icon image description at the beginning.
