Hi there. I am trying to place a .docx file, pressing shift when I click so the text flows. It's not working out well. Has anyone seen this before?

Without any info about the original Word file nobody can tell you much, but from the looks of it you simply went way too far in the doc and used a ton of custom styles and formatting, which naturally won't translate well to AI simply because this stuff works differently across programs. you need to strip it down and clean it up.

Your screenshot indicates that your question is referring to InDesign and not Illustrator.

 

Does that apply?
