Check Keep Options>Start Paragraph on Paragraph Style Option
Thankyou for your reply
Couldn't find that option.
I'm assuming that to access these options you mean click the 'show import options' when choosing the file
On doing this this the nearest equivalent is 'preserve styles and formatting from text and tables'
and then under that: manual Page Breaks -> [drop down menu] preserve page breaks
and Import styles automatically -> Paragraph style conflicts -> [drop down menu] Use Indesign Style Definitions
Anyway, that makes no difference. Fwiw it is reporting no style name conflicts.
I'm going to try to a) import from .pdf although for some reason, and I do remember that I have had issues with this authors .pdfs before, the 'pdf is not placing properly either. It is appearing on only first page even when all pages checked in options.
b) try reconvert to .doc again and see if there is an issue in the conversion process.
I've been typesetting a whole load of articles over the last few days with no problem. But I do remember having probelms with this authors work before, but not like this and it was a year ago so I've forgotten what I did... grrr
Thanks anyway, and if I've completely misunderstood, could you explain where this options button is. Thank you
Resolved problem. I remembered what I did in frustration last year and did it again. The luddite way. Highlight entire word doc and copy and pasted it instead of place.
