Importing Word Text

When placing a Microsoft Word file, if you check Show Import Options, you are taken to the Microsoft Word Import Options dialog. This is a much-enhanced feature in CS2 and allows for complex mapping of Word paragraph and character styles to InDesign styles. We'll look at Customize Style Import in Chapter 13, " Stylin' with Paragraph and Character Styles." For now, notice that you have the option of importing your Word text with or without Styles and Tables formatting, as well as being able to control the import of Word-created footnotes, endnotes, table of contents text, and index text.
