You’d need to set up the InDesign file as A4 but I’m not really sure what you mean by “whole Word configuration”
What exactly do you mean? Page size has nothing to do with the text contained on the page.
If what you are saying is that you are happy with Word's layout and typography and want to import with exacly the same line endings and page breaks, the odds are pretty good that you'd be better off just uing the Word doc as-is and not bother with ID. If you want to use ligatures and have control over kerning and such, then bring the text into ID, but forget trying to match the layout exactly. ID has MUCH more typographic subtlety and control as well as much better layout control than Word and produces better looking documents with much less effort.
Thanks Bob for your note. By configuration I mean the whole formatting (text fonts and so forth) that I've used in Word.
Hi Peter, I would like to transform a document that I've created in A4 (Word processing) into a layout of my own (156mmx233mm). I don't mind about a changed layout, but do concern myself with the typography.
Is ID available from adobe?
ID is shorthand for InDesign, whcvih is definitely available from Adobe.
Show the import options when you Place the word file and you'll see that you can preserve the formatting (except ID WILL use ligatures by default), or abandon it completely, or map Word's styles to styles you've created in ID. What you do is totally up to you.
