Hi guys

 

I have a strange problem in Indesign 15.1.1 on mac, and it has been there for several versions now.

 

I save an MS Word document, and "place" it in ID. The problem is, that the "numbering" will have two No. 1 and then 2, 3, 4 etc. but in the original word dokument, all seems ok.

When placed in ID

Not sure how to fix it, and is it possible to correct in ID somehow?

 

Thanks

it often happens that indesign and word don't have "good communication".
In some anomalous cases you could try to import word document saved in .docx, or .doc or .rtf and see if one of these formats is better then others when you placed it in indesign

Thanks a lot guys

 

I tried to make a test document in word, and that went in just fine, so it has to do with the specific document for sure.

 

I will try the other formats too, before I do somethign dratic.

 

Thanks.
