Learn how you can import Microsoft Word documents into RoboHelp and customize the imported content based on your needs.

You can quickly import a Microsoft Word document into RoboHelp as one or multiple topics and work with it. While importing you can also configure several settings that RoboHelp provides to import and customize the topics based on your needs.

Import a Word document

To import the HTML version of a Word document in your open project, follow these steps:

  1. In the Contents panel, do one of the following:

    • Select the desired folder in which you want to import the Word document. Then, select File > Import > Word Document.
    • Right-click the desired folder or click  against it and select Import > Word Document.
  2. In the Word Import Settings dialog box, select the desired Word document and edit the settings. See Word import settings to know more.

  3. Once you've specified your desired settings, click Save Settings. RoboHelp saves these settings and applies them automatically when you import a Word document the next time.

  4. Click Import. The HTML version of the selected Word document is generated with the specified settings and included as a topic in the selected folder. The topic is placed in the alphabetical order of topics in the folder, based on its file name. If you don't select a folder while importing, the Word document is imported as a root-level topic in the Contents panel.

Word import settings

When you choose File > Import > Word Document, you can view the Word Import Settings dialog box. Use the following tabs in this dialog box to configure the various settings:

Bemærk:

The ParagraphCharacter, Hyperlink, and Table tabs are enabled only when these styles are applied in the selected Word document.

  • Convert Word Lists to HTML Lists Select this field to import numbered or bulleted lists in the Word document as HTML lists in your topic. If you don't select this setting, the look and feel of the Word lists are maintained in the imported content but they don't remain as lists.
  • Import inline styles Select this field to import the inline styles applied to the content in the Word document.
  • Add generated topics to Table of Contents Select this field to add topics generated from Word documents to a Table of Contents. From the drop-down list, select <New TOC> to create a Table of Contents or choose an existing Table of Contents from your project. By default, all the topics are at the same level. However, you can select the below checkbox to map styles for the TOC hierarchy.
    • Map Word styles to TOC hierarchy While importing a Microsoft Word document into RoboHelp, you can map styles used in Word to a corresponding TOC level in RoboHelp. The Word Style(s) shown on the left are the ones defined in the General settings to split the document. On the right, under the TOC level, you can select the TOC level for that Word style. By doing so, the split sections, as defined by the user in the General settings, are mapped to the specified TOC level.
      Note - Make sure no heading level is out of order. You would not have a Heading 4 come directly after Heading 1. If that happens, the TOC level would automatically move from Heading 4 to Heading 2.
  • Post Import Script From the drop-down list, you can select a script to be run on document import.
