Import MS Word doc with headers and footers intact


I would like to import a MS Word file that has a graphic in the 1st page header and also has page #'s on the following page headers and info in each footer.

I would like to add/import this Word doc into the Draft folder in Scrivener while still leaving all the headers and footers in the Word doc intact.

Is this possible?

Thank you!


Hi Dan,

No, this isn’t possible, because Scrivener doesn’t support headers and footers in its editor. Instead, headers and footers are added at the Compile stage. It wouldn’t make much sense to keep headers and footers intact for a single imported document anyway, since a Scrivener project comprises many documents.

All the best,
