I've just been asked to reformat and correct existing policy and procedure
documents. I have been told that formatting the documents is my
responsibility, but I have to abide by two rules:
1. Documents must be in Word.
2. Word documents must be structured in odd ways so they can be imported
An example of oddly structured documents is that I can not use bulleted
lists, but must put bullets into a table that can be imported into
Folio--because Folio can't do indents.
Has anybody else made Word to Folio conversions? Does anybody have any
suggestions about how to produce a clean template that can be easily
imported into Folio?
Thanks for the Help
