How to copy/paste formatted word docs into confluence?

When I copy paste from word into confluence it loses all the formatting.  Everything becomes eitehr left alligned or completely crazy with no undersatndable style within the formatting.  Is there an easy way to just copy/paste my word docs into confluence with no additional reformatting needed?

Hi Marc,

did you try importing the document? The result is usually better than copy/paste.


Hello Thomas,

Yes, I have imported the word docs.  That does work better, but slower & then I ussually have to move them where I want in the tree.  I asked about word docs, but it's keeping the formatting in general.  I frequently have to copy meeting notes from emails & those lose the formatting as well.  Was hoping the answer to word doc would solve the other.  Seems like such a huge miss for an otehrwise great app.
