Subject:Word to Folio Site director--is it that hard? From:"Kim Forbes" <kim_portonova -at- hotmail -dot- com> To:techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com Date:Tue, 25 Jan 2000 13:56:38 GMT
I asked this question last week,and didn't get any responses; so I'm going
to try and recast it.
I am writing policies and procedures in Word for a print version; and then
the word file is being turned over to another person to put in on our
intranet using Folio Site Director.
I was told that I have to do screwy things with the template to get it to be
imported into folio. For example, all bullet lists and numbered list will
have to be put into a table; I can't use autonumbering, and worst of all--my
original files will have to be made available to this person because copies
This all sounds suspect. Is it really that difficult to covert a Word file
into a Folio file?
I looked in the archives, but didn't find what I was looking for and also
checked a word list, but still no luck.
