Importing Microsoft Word files doc. and .docx
Creative Cloud and Office 364 is up-to-date (although this issue happened before the upgrade so it has something to do with the import filter for .docx files into InDesign [this is the first occasion]).
While importing a .docx file, revisions from the word file appeared in the layout text. I noticed as I started to typeset. Scary.
Checked the Word file, upon Select All, references in the text were highlighted in a darker gray. There was no extra text appearing and revisions were all approved and accepted.
Word file was saved as a .dotx file and imported, the mysteriously embedded text appeared the layout.
When the file was saved as .doc and reimported into InDesign the text disappeared?
Imported the word .docx file into Quark and no mysterious text either.
This was the first occasion, but it is has made me quite wary. Please advise if this has occurred with any other users.
I should also mention that saving the .docx file into .doc is not the solution because it renders the math equations into lo-res bitmap images, which is not acceptable. I believe that the reference citation software used for authors is perhaps the reason why importing Word do
cs is problematic now. I shouldn't being seeing the 'hidden' code. Both software programs are up-to-date.
I am noticing very strange features when importing an MS Word document that has Cambria math and references that have IDs embedded (hidden) in the word file (docx.) I am using a plugin by Movemen that enables the importation of math equations. That works, but the imported text in InDesign has a lot of strange data/ID text that is showing up in the InDesign. You can't see this hidden text in MS Word. This actually started in version cc2018
