Yeah, but not as a single-click solution. I have several different Word
templates I've created that are specifically for RH manuals. My suggestion
is to go through the RH Word doc and tweak its styles and layout so the
result is satisfactory, and then create a template from the result (as well
as creating the manual). The first time you do this is a bit of a hassle,
of course. But it reduces the effort considerably for subsequent manuals.
