I'm having some trouble with style mapping.
Firstly, the preset I creating isn't remembering the style mapping.
Secondly, when I update the link after the Word document has been edited, all styles are forgotten, and it imports the Word styles.
Can anyone help me figure these out? Thanks in advance!
That's just the way it works. If you have set up links to Word or Excel files, if you make changes in the Word or Excel files, all InDesign formatting is lost.
You can re-apply styling (paragraph styles, character styles, object styles, table styles, cell styles) but you can't keep it from happening.
Do you know if the Wordsflow plug-in helps with this at all? If you update from them, going from Word to InDesign?
