Help! Word Tables are Coming into FrameMaker as Text Boxes

May 2, 2013 5:42 PM

Help! I am converting a Word file into FrameMaker (FM) the same way for the past 10 years---now all of a sudden the Word tables are converting to text boxes, ahh! I open the Word file in FM, apply all my formatting & page layouts from my template, and then I go through and apply styles, format, etc.---this is the 2nd time in 2 weeks where ALL tables convert into text boxes in FM, help! I need to get these docs out ASAP! Thank you so much.

    Which version of FM? Which version of Word? Have you tried RTF instead? For an immediate fix, try copying & pasting the tables from Word.

    Can you please post a screen capture (use the camera tool in the Forum answer box) of a small sample table in Word and then what it looks like when imporrted into FM. Also, turn on all borders and text symbols in FM.


    Why are you saving from PDF to RTF when you have the originals in Word??

    What settings are you using when you import?
