What I do is copy the file in Word (CTRL-A, CTRL-C); open Frame; set the
insertion bar; and paste in the file as ASCII text. You're right: the
formatting you built in Word will not carry over. Most of the time, I
found Frame superior to Word, so I did most of my formatting in the
Adobe app. Be sure to set Frame for continuous pages so that your file
will just fill out automatically.
