    Can I place a Word document with images in InDesign CC?

      Dear Community—Can I place a Word document with images in InDesign CC?


      Having been spoiled by always doing my own typesetting and layout, and presently

      having an InDesign page-layout person attempt my book, I went back to Sandee Cohen's

      InDesign CC Visual Quickstart Guide hoping I can learn what I need to know.

           I'm posing this question before really getting into InDesign CC book because my Word doc of the book

      I carefully designed with 140 photos and other images incorporated in it.

      Naturally I would hope I can place it in InDesign that way, and not text first, followed by visuals.


      If I may add something that may or may not matter in context of my question,

      I'd just like to say that I published my The Spirit That Moves Us poetry and fiction press

      from 1975 to 2000 beginning with sending camera-ready copy to the printer from a

      table-top Composer with 8K memory, and later on using QuarkXPress 4 (it's now up to 100)

      which I tried with my present book that I inadvertently came to take on at age 80, but found impossible.

      InDesign was recommended to me by several people and I'm happy to have it.


           Thank you,
