Imported footnotes from say docx files?

Post by johntranter » 2017-05-12 17:47:47

I run a small literary magazine. Contributors often send me papers with footnotes, and send the file as an attachment to an email, writing their files in a version of Microsoft Word that produces .docx files. I use a Mac, and Nisus Writer Pro. When I automatically convert the file to RTF format using Nisus Pro, the footnotes often disappear. Everything else comes though okay; and I usually convert this file to HTML and publish it via WordPress, and ask the author to proof-read it. But then the author lets me know that the footnotes are missing!! Is there some way to prevent this happening?

It may be that your import filters need to be set correctly to give a more complete import.
Set the filters to LibreOffice from NWP Preferences=>Advanced.

Sorry about the three images: there should only be one.
