Importing a word document with an ordered list inside a two
column table with multiple rows. The ordered list only resides on
the right column.
When importing to RH, the first numbered list imports
correctly. The next row restarts numbering at one and continues
with the number one thus all entries are numbered one. It also
converts some of the numbers to bullets. This is a new project, not
an existing project that was upgraded to version 7.
We tried using the styles to correct the problem. It numbered
everything as a one and didn’t recognize any of the paragraph
Also, We have tried hacking the HTML and it won’t keep
any changes. I believe we could correct the problem if we could
change the HTML.
Can you tell us how to create a style sheet that will correct
this problem within this table or what are your suggestions?
Since the Word document you're importing has probably been
edited by multiple authors with varying degrees of sophistication,
the lists have likely been styled to delirium. Converting them to
HTML would be a chore for any tool.
The least painful way I would suggest is to:
1. In Word, remove all list formatting.
2. Import the Word doc into RH.
3. In RH, select appropriate groups of paragraphs and click
the List toolbar button (Numbered or Bulleted).
4. If you need a sublist, select those paragraphs and click
the Increase Indent toolbar button.
