I've noticed this issue with a couple of longer Word docs: When I attempt to place a long text doc into a text frame (with the pref to auto-add pages to allow all text to flow in turned on), I get only about 27,000 characters imported (about 3500 words). I've seen this issue reported by others, occasionally, but haven't found a solution posted. Has anyone else run into this and found a solution?
The Word doc doesn't have any odd characters where the file stops importing...no section breaks, etc.
Thanks for the advice!
Does it have some reason to go into overset like a string of words separated by non-breaking spaces and no hyphenation allowed? Take a look in Story editor at the first bit of text after the last frame and see if you see any reason for it be overset -- the aforementioned spaces, paragraph indents that add up to be wider than the column, a table with too much content in a cell to fit on the page...
That's exactly what happened. Some were long URL strings, and there were some client-formatted lines for firms using the underline key. Glad to know about this quirk from this point on!
