Having problem with images in Word documents not coming through cleanly. . . getting lots of these errors:
Unable to embed resource: worddavce1efe792ec7df8b1588dc412a9b135f.wmf of type application/octet-stream
Basically, images within the Word document is getting in to Confluence through the import as wmf files and since Confluence does not display wmf files -- the problem.
I'm looking for creative ways around this problem. . .
Is there a way to influence this import process so that these images come in as a supported format?
Is there a way to display wmf in Confluence?
Is there sonmething I can do in the Word document so that these images are set differently so that Confluence import will translate them into a supported format?
Anything regarding MIME types I should try?
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
We have found this work around that works but still somewhat cumbersome. If you save the Word document as a PDF and then open it up with your Adobe reader/acrobat and save as a word format. Then use the resulting document to import into confluence.
You should see images.
we had the same problem when we imported a lot of our word documentation into confluence.
Unfortunately, we didn't find a solution. We converted the imported wmfs manually to jpg, uploaded these images and edited the pages manually to show the new jpgs.
Hope you find a better solution.
I am actively having this problem and it is critical that we find a solution too. I will post here when I find a a solution.
I'm looking into whether there is anything I can do in Lotus Notes (our source) to control what is pasted into Microsoft Word (i.e. the image is pasted as a PNG, JPG or GIF, not as a WMF file which is Microsoft's proprietary vector/clipart format and, as you know, not what we need!). The other option I'm looking at is whether there is a Word API call I can use in VB that will convert the in-line images from WMF to a supported format. I'll be checking back here for your progress and also sharing what I find. Thanks.
the image upload is not really a big hit. My questions here never lead to anything good. It might happen that an image is referenced on multiple pages, but is only attached to the first wiki-page in the import. Check wether the image can be found via the global search and adjust the links.
As for the rest : Build a macro and look for each image - cut & "special-paste as PNG" - might help, but bevware of images, which are scaled down. Windows copy & paste sometimes really wrecks the quality of those images. Then, you only can do a screenshot and cut out the part you need with some special graphicy programm and upload it manually.
Good luck :)
