Word (docx) Import improvements
Aaron Reed commented
Steps to reproduce the bug"
1. Import a Word document.
2. Look at the incorrect paragraph and line spacing.
- Need to use Microsoft Word to enable reliable spelling and grammar checking.
1. Go to Design > Text
2. Change the Line spacing and the Paragraph spacing and watch how only bullet lists are affected, but not any paragraphs of text.
Work Around provided by PandaDoc support:
1. Cut and paste the text into Notepad.
2. Cut and paste the text back into PandaDoc.
- Note: this can be hours of work, just to fix the spacing.
- One-by-one highlight each block of text in a paragraph and click the "Clear Formatting" button in PandaDoc. Must repeat this step for each text box. Also a very time-consuming task.
- After clearing formatting, it still shows as being "Normal Text" and the Line and Paragraph spacing numbers remain as they were, but suddenly the text on the page starts respecting these settings.
Both of these workarounds require you to carefully avoid all headers and bullet lists, as this process will destroy the required formatting for those parts.
This bug needs to be solved at the import function.
Please can you give me an estimated time frame as to when you will fix the problem, as it's causing many hours of wasted time trying to fix up Panda documents?

We have found that when we upload a MS Word document, the page size and formatting changes. Being in Australia, our default page size is A4. I get the feeling that when the Word doc gets uploaded, it changes - possibly to Letter - which throws page formatting out.

expand limitations in PandaDoc for Word

Due to the limitations for converting MS Word Docs into editable PandaDoc templates/documents some design features in MS Word are not imported ( for ex. smart art, shapes), also comments and notes inside MS Word are not imported.
