I am working on a word file containing a large number of boxes of text (graphs, tables, etc.) embedded in the main text. On import, only the text outside the boxes appears in the project.

I have browsed the various filters in the window in the right hand-side but no one seems relevant.

Can someone help me?

Millions thanks

doc or docx May 13, 2013

Hi Laure,

Is this a doc (Word 2003) or docx (Word 2007-2010-2013) file.
Sometimes docx files are converted from a previous version, e.g. doc -> docx
In that case there are legacy embedded objects but you can use DVX2 macros in Word to convert them.

Problem solved, thank you! May 13, 2013

Wonderful, Cekuk, your suggestion solved it.
Plus the fact that, as I was told by Atril support in Paris (although they did not mention your idea), I should have unticked the box "Ignore the results of the fields/ignorez les résultats des champs" on importing the file.

Thank you again.
