About This Episode
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!
