Now you can create a new type of document-level Table of Contents (TOC) with Adobe FrameMaker (2015 release). This new feature automatically creates, sorts and inserts a "mini-TOC" at the specified location at the beginning of your document. This eliminates old, error-prone techniques of manually creating several lines of cross-references, which do not update their order automatically if you change the order of referenced headlines. This is one more new feature in Adobe FrameMaker (2015 release) which will save your countless hours in production on a yearly basis.
You can easily import a Word document into unstructured FrameMaker format by simply opening the Word file in FrameMaker. One shortcoming is that the graphics embedded in Word will come over as embedded graphics in FrameMaker; this makes your files larger and you cannot edit the graphics. The Smart Paste command in structured FrameMaker may be used to swiftly convert selected Word graphics into referenced graphics. In this brief video, Adobe Product Evangelist, Maxwell Hoffmann (@maxwellhoffmann) shows you the simple steps to accomplish this. You are actually just using a temporary DITA Topic files as a placeholder to allow the file conversion to take place via smart paste. Try it; it's easy!
