Hi @Roger Brunner 

Change the arrow shapes to dots.

If you have some sort of visualization going on replacing that with --> or <-- in word and then import into confluence

Hello @Roger Brunner , I am not sure what snips are in Word, but that is probably a bridge too far when it comes to importing Word docs. Generally they need to be pretty vanilla:

  • Standard builtin formats (H1, H2, body, etc.)
  • Not ToC or title page
  • No headers or footers
  • Tables
  • Figures only as images (png, jpeg, etc).
