Tips to improve your Word (DOCX) imports




  • Greta Hoffmann

    Hi Mike, Two years ago at TEC in Tennessee, I went to a user session that talked about Importing long Word exhibits (it was one of the practical sessions on computers). It had a tips and tricks sheet that I've since lost. I'm wondering if you happen to have access to that?

    Say If I have a table format in the word document, will it require any special steps i need to take care?

    WOW!!  You have just saved me hours of time trying to format a 130 page agreement with "legal section numbers."  Thank you so much!!

    Thanks for sharing, Celeste, and happy to hear it was a time saver. You're quite welcome. And welcome to the Community 😊

    Fabulous news! We just rolled out a new enhancement to help mitigate too much section creation. You now can select which method of section creation on import.

    This new option for "Only when necessary" will collapse all content into as few sections as possible, to make it easier for customers to organize and edit their work within Documents without sorting through as many section breaks.

    If you wish to preserve the DOCX section breaks, you'll want to check the box for “From existing section breaks” when you import the file.

    Note that Section breaks will still be inserted where necessary based on how the Document handles section-level settings. This includes adding breaks for content that includes transitions between single and multi-column text, where headers and footers change, and for changes to page dimensions, orientations, margins, or page numbering.

    Thanks for your continued feedback on helping us improve this process. Holler with any questions and happy Friday!
