Michael,

For what you're trying to do, you might just want to check "Preserve Skipped
Lines" in the Global, Word Importer dialog.

The import process makes absolutely no checks for the validity of a code.
Moreover, an invalid code will not generally affect translation or
formatting.

Subject: [duxhelp] Line breaks in word files

Hi,

We are trying to create a document that has some blank lines in it. Our
final product should look like:

Line 1

Line 2

If we leave a blank line in the word file, this is removed when opened in
DBT. If we imbed a line break in the word file like so:

Line 1
[[*<*]]
Line 2

We get two blank lines instead of one (after removing the para. style).
Is there a way to get a single blank line in the final product?

On a second front, while I was embedding codes into the word file, I
attempted to import an error using this ability. By using:

Line1
[[*breakme*]]
Line2

I was able import the invalid code into DBT. However, this did not affect
embossing at all (this is good!). I see that in the manual you mention the
[idle] code, is it possible to insert any code, and have anything not
recognized be ignored?

Thank you very much!
