Importing Text

Recommended Posts

We have a lot of legacy note files (general notes, construction notes..any large amount of notation) that we have composed in Word. We have found that we are unable to use anything newer than Word 5.1 to import text and keep formatting information. I wonder how other people do this sort of notation.

Mac 10.3 and 10.4. VW 11.

Thank you.

Here's a neat trick for down & dirty ... most suppliers & Gov agencies provid specs via pdf on the web or the html can be printed to PDF from OSX. Once downloaded the pages many not be correctly formatted and often contain some extraneous information. The fix is to open the PDF file in Preview then use the crop tool on the selection and copy the result to the clipboard. Then goto VW and paste the static text & image results directly into the active document ... hassel free.
