import/export

I’m attempting to import text from Word 2007. The tutorial states that PDF and Plain Text files formats are supported, among others, in the 1.4 Beta version. However, the import feature only looks for TXT and RTF formats and thus will only import files saved in those formats.

This would be less important if the import feature did not consistently destroy my paragraph indents and apostrophes! Going from Scrivener back to Word doesn’t seem to involve this, but the import function definitely wastes the time required to get everything straight. Also, unless corrections are made, exporting the files preserve the error.

Is this a Windows thing? Will the ability to import PDF files be included in the release version?
