Can I copy from Word with images directly into Confluence ?

There does not seem to be a consesnus on this. I Run Mac OS 10.12.5 and When I copy and past it picks up the text but not the impages. I can import the document but then it is a word document in confluence. Client wants content in confluence. Can anybody help with this ?

Hi Peter,

if you import the document, it is no word document in Confluence, you generate Confluence pages from the content of the word document.

Or did I understood you wrong?

copy & paste from Word to Confluence does not work...

Another option would be to attach the word document ot the page and then use the Office Word macro to render the page out as if it were a Confluence page ... images and all. It will give you and edit link as well that will automatically open the attachment is Word allowing you to hit save and have the changes "pushed" back into Confluence without having to do the whole dowload a local copy, make your changes, and re-upload.
