Image Lost Problem when Importing Word Docs


I have encountered a problem when I tried to import Word documents into the research folder. If there are images in the Word documents, all those images would be lost after importation. The only way to overcome this is: either import derived PDF instead of directly importing the Word document, or add the images manually after importing Word documents.

Are there any other better ways to deal with it? Will 2.0 improve on this?



Have you tried saving the files as RTF from Word, and then importing them into Scrivener?


Yes, as Amber says, Save As from MS Word as RTF and import them as RTF instead. Scrivener’s RTF import and export is much better than its .doc and .docx import and export, as it has to rely on black-box Apple translators for the latter.

All the best,
