Importing Word documents without converting

I am using Scrivener for organising documents for a project and while some of the writing is happening in Scrivener, I also have to use MS Word for other aspects (e.g. for sharing change-tracked documents). When I import a Word document into a project, Scrivener converts it and so doesn’t allow me to use Word.

Is there some way to import a Word document without converting it so that I can edit it using Word as an external editor (just as happens with Excel)?

I am using Scrivener version 2.6 on Mac OS X

Sorry, no, this is not possible.
