i need help. the client doesn't want to get the document in pdf format. he wants ms-word. ?"#!!!$)(
so does anybody have advice how i can export or convert the indesign document to word?
thanx for any suggestions.
I believe you can only export the separate "stories" as text files
nice link Bluejam, but i think this will also be dependant on 'clipboard preferences/settings' as it has not worked for me before.
i could be wrong though...
thanx bluejam... you mean copy the whole thing? or page by page? its a 120 pages document with lots of graphics...
your client is a joke, you should charge them for the Word format document as a separate job.
I assume you agreed on a format when you started the 120 book?
basker you are right... but i am sick of argueing. i tried it, believe me... i just want this thing get done right now... i dont care if the word document looks pretty shitty, as long as all the text and the images are there...
Not a simple task, your choices are two:
1. Recreate the whole thing in word and charge accordingly
2. Offer the client the option on an editable pdf, that might work for them and you better.
then just run in all the text into the word doc. Then insert all the images (make sure they are all converted to 72 dpi) then style it up as well as you can. Still sounds like a lot of work!
Can't you just export to PDF then take it into Acrobat and save as a word Doc?
thanx D... a glimpse of light, on my dark, black shy... going to try that!
Rockdog, whilst your there can I have the moon on a stick and it HAS TO FREE
export your pdf.
then import the pages of the pdf into word as jpegs.
just a thought.
rockdog, I just tried the pdf to word option and it worked although there's some adjusting to do.
export as pdf, open pdf, export as word.
client says: (like a little child, stomping feet) i want to edit it myself...
thanky folks. i also tried the "save as ms word" option out of acrobat. its the best result one can get. still a little work to do, but better than build it up from scratch!
