Keep these important points in mind when importing your MS Word Documents and converting to PDF:
- Any images in your document will be uploaded to the current forms media folder. You can access these images from within the editor and update them as needed.
- Page breaks are not maintained and you'll need to add [PDF Page Break] at the points in the document where you would like page breaks.
- Headers and Footers are not automatically parsed. You'll need to pull those out of your document body and manually insert them into the Document Header and Document Footer. If you switch to source code, mode you can find the header and footer divs and copy them into their respective locations.
