    Text Variables

    Yes, indeed. This is very important for books.

    What happened to the import of styles?

    Right you are!

    What happened to the import of styles?

    No, don't blame Word. If I import the same Word docs into PagePlus, it works like a charme. Dominik, it definitely has to do with the name of the style: Normal (Standard). Because if I rename the style to jch_Standard, APub imports nicely. This very bug I had experienced with older versions of QuarkXPress, but never with InDesign. InDesigns Word import is and has always been just perfect.

    Good idea, this helped solving the problems with my short doc, completely. Thanks, Dominik! It didn't, however, solve the "Normal style disappears problem" in my long docs. In some of my docs, Normal style still turns into [No Style].

    FYI: In Publisher for Mac, the import is more reliable, but not 100 %.

    What happened to the import of styles?

    It is weird, in some instances, it works, in some, it doesn't. I've attached an image and the corresponding Word doc to show that it hasn't worked. (Next try worked, however. So it seems to be a game of hazard.) PublisherTestdoc.docx

    Word's Normal style becomes [No style]

    Okay, done.

    Word's Normal style becomes [No style]

    Don't ask me, why, but out of a sudden it works fine (with some short documents). However, with one long document of mine, a novel, at least the Normal style stills turns into [No Style] again and this document you can get. However, I'd rather like to send the doc by mail. I'm not attaching it to my post. So, please send a PM, Jon.

    Situation hasn't changed in 399, sorry: At least not when importing .docx. RTF works fine (except Normal style).

    Word's Normal style becomes [No style]

    Sean, I've tried what you've said: still an issue In 399 In fact, styles disappear completely if I importing .docx. They do appear, if I import .rtf, except Normal, of course. Seems to be extremly difficult, QuarkXPress used to have the same problem long ago. So, at the moment, the workaround is: Import Word files in RTF only and rename Normal beforhand.
  11. 1.) I'm importing a Word document into APub, containing styles such as Normal, heading 1 and so on. 2.) In APub, all styles seem to have gone. However, the first field in Text Styles pane shows something like heading 1 + ... 3.) I'm choosing Delete all ununsed styles. 4.) The Text Styles pane only shows [No Style] [No Style]. Bottom line: formatting still is there, style names have gone

    Word's Normal style becomes [No style]

    This bug has not yet been fixes (build ... 384). But it is very important. Furthermore, the whole import of styles seems to malfunction. See my other post.
  13. Congratulations! Pre-order done for licence nr. 1, more orders to follow later on! I'll buy one for my Mac, too.
  14. I also do appreciate your hard work and I'm very impressed with the progress your are making. You are really listening to us, the users and customers. Thank you!
  15. Importing a Word document into APub now seems to work quite nicely, even paragraph and character styles are preserved. Well done! However, Word's default paragraph style Normal becomes [No Style] which means: You can't edit it any more. It is lost! I ask you to kill this bug and maybe map Normal to, well, Normal. Thanks. Workaround: Name your body copy paragraphs differently, a workaround I'm using with QuarkXPress which also seems to have a Normal style importing weakness.
