This is rather self-explanatory, but basically, on confluence when I try to import a Word document to a page I get the error "Invalid file type. Only word documents are supported.". I was trying to upload a .docx. Saving as .doc still doesn't get me past this error.
I'm wondering what I might be doing wrong?
It looks like I found my answer.
The original docx I had really wouldn't import. However, I was converting to .doc using libreoffice, and apparently they do things a little different. Using Microsoft Office to convert to doc worked for me.
Now I have to solve the problem of the actual import being depressingly lacking, but that's another issue.
I checked various entries and confluence-tickets, but no suggested answers were working out.
I'm trying to import a file that I created from the start, so no conversion or anything else affects it. The file was created on Office365 on Windows10. I tried the default *.docx, the 97-2003 *.doc, the OpenXML *.docx, I even tried opening the file on LibreOffice and OpenOffice and saving it as any other Word-format.
I also tried using Firefox, Chrome and Edge on the most recent versions.
The result was always the same error as described by Dimitris.
Hey Jeff, this has been an issue since before 2015... so don't hold your breath.
I gave up in it a while ago... I now copy and paste the content of the word document into a new confluence document. You then need to re-imbed the images but it doesn't take long once you get a rhythm doing.
Hang in there bud.
It happens to me, unable to upload a doc file. In my case, the doc file was generated by exporting from Atlassian in another server. No creation with MS Office or Libre Office, or whatsoever. !! Sorry ... Still looking for an alternative to Confluence ... What am I expected to do??
