Can Scrivener for Mac open .docx files?

I read that Scrivener for Mac can export files as .docx, but can it open .docx files originally created in MS Word? Thanks.

Hi,

It can import them, yes - you just create a project in Scrivener and drag the .docx file into Scrivener’s binder, or use File > Import > Files… Some formatting may be lost, as may images and footnotes, but the text will import fine. (If you have images and footnotes, you should open the .docx file in Word and save it as an RTF file, then import that into Scrivener.)

Hope that helps.

All the best,
Keith
