Re: Word to Framemaker
I am converting a large, complex manual from Word to Framemaker 7.2. The
manual has a TOC, numerous subsections, footnotes, headers, and running
headings. It is about 460 pages. I have read TechKnowledge Corp's online
article about this conversion, but found that after I eliminated all the
page breaks, TOC, headers, and footers, what remained looked much like a
WordPad text. It would take me a week to redo all those elements.
Is there a third-party plug-in that isn't ridiculously expensive or a method
whereby I may retain the elements of the Word DOC?
Now that the day shift is in, I thought some of you might know.
I don't think that you can get there from here, but maybe some of you know
Try Filtrix. It will import it into your document. There is a bit of a learning curve, though not excessive. It is a bit better than importing RTF directly into Frame.
