Importing data from Word

There are several way how content from word files can be imported into Matrix

Drag and drop word files into rich text editors

If you drag and drop a word file into a rich text box, Matrix will ask you whether to attach the file (as hyperlink) or to convert it to text.

If you convert it to text it will be imported as text and most formatting will be removed so that it can be printed correctly afterwards.

Note: if you do ctrl-z after the import some of the original formatting might be restored, but the text will be harder to edit and to print.

In the following video (direct link here), see an example of drag and drop of a word document:

Use Word files to create a DOC item

If you select a DOC folder you can click on "Import DOCX" which will allow you to convert the word files into a DOC item.

Importing items from Word is done through a word import tool: More information can be found here: Word Import Tool
