Is there any recommendable Word (MS Office 2016) import addon for Confluence? The standard document import function of Confluence does not work so well. For one part undiserable wiki markups are created randomly, for another part the conversion of tables are a mess with control characters and so on. Pictures are imported randomly. Especially for bigger documents there is much rework to do....
Using Copy&Paste is also a problem as pictures are not copied into (or out of) the clipboard. This only works with a PDF version of the document.
Do you have to import the document?
What if the documents are stored on say Google Drive (docs) and through a plugin can be added and edited though plugin in Confluence. We use Google Drive & Docs for Confluence
It is a great tool.
One can view files direct from Google Drive or have a file open in Google Docs or Sheets but through a Confluence page.
Fair points @Frank-Olaf_Nagel
check out this link - https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/Bulk-import-Word-documents-as-confluence-page/qaq-p/854500 specifically the comment from @skazar using webDAV and a JS-Script.
I am unaware of any third-party import add-ons. I do know that any Word file needs to be cleaned up prior to import to decrease the frustration. Also, you need access to the source editor to be able to use regex patterns to clean-out Word junk post import.
Bottom line, you will have to endure some pain to move from the Word to Confluence domain.
