Publisher crashes while importing Word documents

Recommended Posts

It doesn't crash on Windows, but it doesn't import well. I think it's because it's mostly tables. It gives me a Text Frame with the overflow indicator, but doing a shift+click on it doesn't properly reflow into new pages.

Have you tried this on the latest build?

I can't replicate any crashes, and the file seems to import fairly well for me (better on Windows due to the font substitutions).

I did notice an issue on Mac when examining the tables that are imported however, which I've logged.
