Importing word document - supported characters

I have a word document (quite long) where I have linked thetable of contents page to the relevant section of the manual. (for instance clicking on "6.4" within the tables of contents jumps down to section 6.4). However, when I import this doc to confluence - this feature disappears and NOTHING is linked... Moreover, when i click on edit I see a bunch anchors that lead to nothing... There are also little blue circle graphics within my document now as well. Is there a way to retain this feature when import word docs to confluence?

Hi Shannon - I have just gone in and added my vote and comment. The isue has been open for over a YEAR! can this be escalated? Is importing documents not a core function?

Hi Alexander,

Thank you for your vote!

While it's not possible to escalate this bug ticket, your comment will be seen by the developers. The comments and the vote increase the liklihood that the issue will be resolved sooner. Have a look at the Bug Fixing Policy if you haven't previously for more details on this.

Kind Regards,
