Text documents not supported

Recommended Posts

It appears that Publisher does not support opening any type of text document other than .pdf. I sincerely hope that this will be addressed as it would be a shame to give up a great program like Pageplus for this.

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums :) 

In the Text menu you can currently also insert .txt and .rtf files. You can open or insert .PDF files and we are working towards opening/inserting .docx  and .idml formats.

I wish place command would be used also for text (rtf, docx) documents. There is really no need to have separate commands for text and graphics.

If I import a RTF file (exported from LibreOffice) into PagePlus X9 it retains the Text Styles. (They look different, but retain the style "Heading 1" etc.)

However, if I import the same file into Affinity Publisher it doesn't. All the headings show as "no style".

Am I missing something, or do I have to go through the whole document to set the various styles again?

Thank's for the reply, but I still seem to loose the Heading styles. I think I must be doing something wrong in LibreOffice!

Feel free to post a sample .odt document that illustrates the problem, and perhaps one of us can confirm that it exists or explain how to avoid it.
