There was a improvement request related to this some time ago:
The final consideration from the Crucible product manager was:
After spending quite some time evaluating our priorities we decided to not address this issue. I am aware of the number of people that have voted for this and I can understand the benefits that MS Word support could bring if it was implemented.
