Automatic numbering based on DOCX document

Postby quark.usr » 15 May 2018, 08:58

Dear Quark User!

I have DOCX file with text grouped in style like above:

1. Interesting idea:
a)
b)
c)
2. Interesting another idea:
a)
b)
c)
d)
...
etc.


When I import text from DOCX file to Quark 2017 I lost numbering a) b) c) etc. Is any posibility to change this or I have to manually change text? Where can I find tools to adjust text in my situation? I try in "Edit paragraph Style Sheet" in place */123 but it was not working as I expected (it changed all line in my text).

You should be able to import a numbered list just fine with a DOCX file. I do it occasionally and have only needed to adjust line spacing/leading and the number offset in the Numbering styles.

Dear Mike,

how you make it? I try simple Ctrl+E (File > Import) without changing anything and I lost MS Word DOCX numbering style.

Try the Word document I zipped up and attached.

The only thing I can think of is that your Word document has keyed-in sub points...or something. It would be difficult to guess without seeing a portion of the Word file that demonstrates the error. If you can share a page, or enough text to illustrate the problem, that would be good.

Hi quark.usr,

you have to checkmark "Include Style Sheets", then it works.

When you save your Word-File as RTF, numbering is imported as normal text.
