Before you begin importing you will need the following:
If importing from Word documents...
You will need a supported version of Microsoft Word installed on your computer. Refer to Hardware and Software recommendations for installations for details.
Note: If you don't have Microsoft Word installed, you can save the document as RTF by using another computer that does have Word installed, or by using a Word to RTF converter. The document can then be imported in RTF format.
If importing from FrameMaker MIF documents...
Only Frame chapter files saved as MIF can be imported; Book files saved as MIF are not supported by the importer.
An open Author-it library:
If this is your first document, then you should start with a new library. Otherwise, open an existing library.
The file or files you are going to import, including any linked graphics.
Importing can use a lot of memory, depending on the nature and complexity of the documents being imported. You may need to restart Author-it, close other applications and perhaps restart Windows to free up memory.
