Notion Microsoft Word Import
Notion does a great job importing Microsoft Word files
Notion supports the ability to import 11 different formats including Microsoft Word documents. So I was wondering, How well does Microsoft Word Import Work?
I have many Word documents. I was wondering how well will it handle some of my complex Microsoft Word Files.
Four Things I Learned
- You need to convert any "legacy" Word Documents (.doc format) to use the Microsoft Word XML format. Otherwise the import will fail.
- Embedded images and tables are imported very well. I didn't have any problems with the tables and images after it imported.
- It was actually easier to read the documents once imported. Nice to see the 'web flow' without the page breaks.
- Table colors are not imported - as they aren't supported in Notion. It does impact how the table looks.
Microsoft Table Colors
Having color actually makes reading the table data a bit easier.
Overall, the import of 20-files went well.
I was impressed with how quickly the import process went and how Notion kept all the same formatting - so the documents looked good.
There's no indication when Notion will support table colors.
