    Is it possible to import only select portions of a Word doc into InDesign?

    sia5200

      I would like to import multiple sections of text from a Word document into an already created InDesign template. I figure I will need to apply paragraph styles to these sections so they fall into place once they are imported into InDesign, but I am not sure if there is a way to only import these wanted sections, as there is a bunch of other text in the Word doc that does not need to be carried over.

      Currently, this is being accomplished by copying and pasting each section individually, which is inefficient.

      If it's not possible to import just these desired sections, I'd be interested in somehow setting the InDesign document up so that all the unwanted text gets imported off to the side of the page and can be easily deleted if desired, but I don't have any experience with this.

      Any thoughts or feedback would be very helpful. Thank you!
