Altova StyleVision 2024 Professional Edition

Inserting MS Word Content

Home Prev Top Next

If Microsoft Word 2007+ is installed on your machine, then content can be pasted from Word documents into the design as static content. The Word content will be inserted within suitably corresponding design components, and text formatting properties will be carried over from the Word content. For example, text content that is in a Word paragraph block will be inserted within a Paragraph component, and the formatting of the text will be preserved (see screenshots below).

Note:In addition to Word content, any content that can be pasted into a Word document can also be pasted into a StyleVision design. This includes MS Excel tables and HTML page content.


Note:To create an SPS that contains static content from an entire Word document, create a new SPS with the File | New | New from Word 2007+ command.
