Import Word Doc - Column Chart in MS Word is not imported to Confluence Page

We're using Confluence Server 6.13.8 and imported a Word document to the Confluence page. I noticed that the 'Column Chart' inserted in the Word document is not imported (not displayed) on the Confluence page.

Can anyone advise if this is a bug? Or this function is not yet available. function to display 'Chart' inserted into the Word document and will be imported into Confluence.

Hi Jheff, I assume you mean "creating a new page by importing an MS Word document," not "displaying an attached MS Word document within a page."

I have noticed that several types of Microsoft "objects" such as charts, Smart Art, etc. are not imported (or not predictably imported) during the MS Word import document process. It appears to be a limitation of the import feature. 

If I were in this situation I might try,

  • Taking a screenshot of the chart, then including it as an image in the new page
  • Copying the chart to PowerPoint, then saving that slide as an image and including it in the new page

Depending on your content / use case you could also try copying the chart data from the chart, and using it to create a chart on the new page using the Chart macro.

Hi Michelle, you are right. Create a new page by importing a Word File.

Hi @Jheff Gamba ,

We have tested with the latest version of Confluence and the file preview and office macro for word documents with charts is working. In theory this should be no different with 6.13.x. Could you please elaborate a bit on the issue you are seeing?

Hi @Alex K I am referring to the 'Import Word Document' function.
