Maintaining text marked as "Headings" with Word/RTF Export's Avatar

09 Jun, 2014 09:07 PM

When exporting to Word or RTF, I figured that the headings would be "marked" as headings.

For example, I want to create a table of contents through word (because I need page numbers in the table of contents). But all exported, though formatted appropriately, is marked as 'normal' or freeform text.

Am I missing something?

    This is not at all meant to sound snippy, but there are probably a dozen
    conversations on this topic throughout this forum. If you do a search
    and don't find a relevant conversation, please let me know.

    Sorry, Brett. I may not be searching for the correct terms, but I can't find anything that answers this question. The only relevant thing I'm finding is my own question (searching for table of contents, page numbers, etc.).

    I must be missing something.

    I apologize for any wild goose chases. Some of the conversations I'm referring to ended up being marked "Private," and some don't have headings/keywords that would show up for a pertinent search.

    Here are a couple, but I'll go ahead and respond further:

    The issue is that even Word itself doesn't create "heading" styles when importing HTML, which is what Marked has to output first before conversion. I'm working on a system that actually builds the XML for the DOCX one step at a time, but styling is proving difficult and it's not my top priority for the next release. It is a top priority after that one's out the door, though.

    Thanks, Brett. Should’ve known it was a Word issue. As always, looking forward to your updates! I’ll seek out a different solution for the moment.
