    Retaining styles after converting tables to text ...

    Spenno Level 1

      Hello

      I am creating some books in InDesign which involve importing text files which are Word documents and are tables containing several paragraph styles which correlate to the styles in my InDesign document.

      When I place the document the tables import with the correct styles. I had planned on converting all tables to text, but InDesign only allows me to select one at a time; I also found a script in the scripting forum that converts all tables to text. Both however remove the formatting and I lose my styles.

      The other option is to opt to import the document as unformatted text rather than tables, but then I also lose my styles.

      Any ideas on how to import without the tables but maintain the styling?
