Getting Microsoft Word and InDesign to Work Together

Thursday, May 12

11:15 am - 12:15 pm Washington, DC (UTC-4)

Unless you’re the one writing the copy for the InDesign layouts you design, chances are someone else is using Microsoft Word and giving you the file to flow in. And there’s the rub: Two different software companies. Two different text engines. Two different ways to format text. And it’s up to you to solve it!

In this fast-paced session, we’ll show you how to quickly fix the most common problems you’ll encounter. You’ll be amazed to see how most of the solutions are easy, free, and built right into the program.

This session includes:

  • Importing Word files the smart way: choosing the best options
  • Cleaning up formatting glitches after the first import
  • Dealing with unwanted interlopers like embedded graphics and ugly hyperlinks
  • Suspect the Word file is damaged? There’s a fix for that!
