Importing Word Documents?

Does anyone have an easy way to import a word doc into chief X6 that does not change the formatting and/or tables.  The way I have been doing it is to copy the tables from the word doc into a .pdf file, save the notes to a .dwg file than import them into chief. Very slow and time consuming process w/ 5 or 6 pdf's in one layout file.

Yes David - I have done it that way also but you loose most of the formatting (i.e. tabs, indents, underlined words, bold words, italicized words and tables get all screwy) and still very time consuming.

I have tried to import this document, it will not come in as formatted and the tables will be wacky. No matter if you cut and paste in a text window, a rich text window or import as a PDF. Unless I am missing something I think the first way I suggested is about the easiest way to do it.  Still a lot of clean up work to do and SLOW w/ all the tables in separate PDF windows.
