How to Import Word Document and split by heading Level 4,5... ?


Currently, Confluence allow me to split by heading when import a Word Docuemnt as following:

  • Don't split
  • Level 1 Headigns
  • Level 2 Headings
  • Level 3 Headings

Then, the document that I need to import has Level 4, 5 and 6 of headings. So when I import to Confluence using Level 3, it doesn't split the headings correctly because is missing Level 4,5,6 from the Word document. So I want to choose at least 6 levels on confluence to see the file imported properly.

It's possible to add more level headings?

Hi Carlos,

Can you please verify exactly what you're missing from the document? You said that you import using Level but you're missing 4, 5, and 6 from the Word document.

Can you outline what your document formatting looks like now so we can better understand the issue you're having? 

Kind Regards,

Hello Shannon

Thank you for you answer.

  1. I made a document to understand in a easy way what I want. I just create six different titles and marked each one as Heading 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.  See image:
  2. Then I do import from Confluence using the option "Import Word Docuement", and the dropdown to Split by Heading just display till Heading 3, and I want to split till heading 6. See image:
  3. This is how it looks when I imported the document with Heading 3. I want to split it in the same way but including Heading 4, 5 and 6. See image:


Let me know if this is clear for you.



Hi Carlos, Did you find any resolution for this issue?
