Hi Peter.  Thanks for your response.  The reason I thought it was a bug is
because the .mws file is filled with Word style names that have spaces in
it, like "Heading 1". And they seems to work just fine without the
underbars.  But they are all built-in styles.  It's only with user-defined
styles that things fail.

As long as we're on the subject of style mapping, .mws files, and
improvement:  Is there any chance of adding support for mapping
nestable/character styles?  Unless I'm missing something, this is not
doable.  Even if you cannot do it via SWIFT, being able to do this via
direct editing of the .mws file would be nifty.  And if I am missing
something, my apologies for bringing it up here and not on DuxUser.

Take care.
Joanie

Joanie,

There is indeed a defect in this area, though I'd be hard pressed to say
whether it is a bug.  (This is because I don't think that any coder made a
mistake.  Rather, we never discussed DBT's design limitation -- no spaces in
stylenames -- with the developer of SWIFT, so we couldn't expect this to
work right.)

You can get around this issue by changing the spaces to underbars in the
.mws file.  It's hardly ideal.  Now may be a good time to improve things.

- Peter

Hi all.  For a while now, user-defined styles that contain spaces are not
recognized by Duxbury.  You can map them with SWIFT and they show up as
expected in your .mws files.  But they seem to be ignored when you import
your document into Duxbury.  Since spaces are clearly acceptable in built-in
word style names, I assume this is a bug.
