Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Word's import options, part of Designing a Magazine Layout (2009).
Here is a slightly different approach to placing the text. In this example, we…are going to suppose the text has been created in Word or any similar Word…processor and that the creator of the text has applied styles, the same style…names that we are using in our layout, and if that's the case, we can leverage…their work and have their styles mapped to our paragraphs and character styles.…If we take a look at the text in Word, here is the styled version, you can see…that it doesn't look the way that we ultimately want it to look in InDesign,…but the important thing is and we can see this when I Click in any of the…paragraphs, that style names have been used and they have been used consistently.…

Q: The instructor explains that doubling-clicking on an image while holding down the Option key on a Mac will automatically open the image in Photoshop. However, the image opens into Preview instead. Why is this happening?
A: Before this feature will work, the correct file type associations must be set up, so that TIFs and JPEGs open with Photoshop and not with Preview.
From the Finder, select any JPEG or TIF file, then Choose File > Get Info. From the Open With drop down menu, choose Photoshop and click the Change All button. Repeat this process for each of the different file types you want use. You need only do this once and it should work from now on.
