Import Microsoft Word documents
Dr. D. Wallis commented
I have written a 50k word booklet in Libre Office (saved in MS docx format), but I can see no way of copying the text into Shaxpir to format it. Is there a "Shaxpir Start-up for Dummies"??? Shaxpir seems like a piece of software for 'experts' and pretty useless for newbies. A "Getting Started" page would help.
Please add Microsoft Word to my document. Also, tell me how to type on the Shaxpir, this is new to me, That is why I took my time to become a customer. I need further help in writing my manuscript.
So far just copy paste, chapter by chapter. If there were a way to incorporate Styles markup from Word in an import, it would take the pain out. Especially without a mobile version.

I have a large word doc that I would like to download into Shaxpir. How do I do that.
I have book one complete and the second one 3/4 complete in a series of four. How do I down load to Shaxpir
How does one import a word document into Shaxpir?
After that, how do I separate the chapters?
Is there a tutorial on functions and how to best work within this program?

Scrivener has a great feature that allows you to import Word documents into Scrivener in a way that keeps chapters separate.

I attempted to paste and copy a Word document into Shaxpir, however, the type is so small I cannot read it. I am not able to make the type bigger. What did I do wrong?

import of any kind would be tremendously useful, if only for testing. I'm currently using Scrivener, and not being able to copy projects from there into here makes testing the cool features with existing text onerous.
no import feature make this less useful
Yes! It seems strange that there would be an export feature without an import feature as well. I love Shaxpir so far, but I'm definitely not looking forward to having to copy and paste each chapter of my 60.000 word novel into Shaxpir one at a time. :(

Yes. My current manuscript is in MS Word with a specific header style at the start of each chapter. Some tool to get them all in cleanly would be jazzy cool.
