Import problem MS Word Tables

Post by Simon Knight » Mon Nov 05, 2007 9:08 am

Hi,
I'm looking for an application that will enable me to stop using MS word. At present I have trial versions of iWork Pages, Mellel and Nisus Writer Pro installed to see how they handle documents originated by MS Word.

I have one such document that opens in MS Word X with seven A4 pages but that opens with only three pages in each of the other applications.

Pages reports the following message on import "Floating Objects inside table cells aren't supported and were removed".

I have tried both Word .doc file and a word generated .RTF file but four pages are always missing. Is there a method of ensuring the complete document is loaded using your application rather than having to load it in MS Word X?

best wishes
Simon

Just out of curiosity, Simon, have you tried NeoOffice?

Sometimes I open an rtf file in NeoOffice, then copy/paste it into Mellel.

Thanks for the tip - I will give Neo Office a try.
