I am importing MS Word documents into Framemaker using File > Import > File. I have mapped my Word styles to my FrameMaker formats and the conversion is pretty darn clean. What I am struggling with is numbered lists. I have tried several approaches which result in all 1s, no reset to 1 (count continues through the entire document without resetting to 1 in new paragraphs), or no numbering at all. My Word styles are all "Numbered" and Word seems to automatically reset to 1 for new paragraphs (unless I manually right-click and select "start from 1") whereas Framemaker has seperate formats for 1 and cont. How can I get my numbered lists in Word to import to my FrameMaker file? I greatly appreciate any insight on this.

The trick is to map to FrameMaker styles that have the numbering defined correctly, and it doesn't matter how they were defined in Word—once you map the styles, FrameMaker is in charge. 

 

Here are two ways to restart a numbered list in FrameMaker. Once you select a method, you will need to update the paragraph styles in FrameMaker.
