How to import text from Microsoft Word to Adobe InDesign without losing any formatting.

In this particular example we have footnotes on every page of the Word file. We want them all at the end so we convert the footnotes to endnotes. We also change the numbering format from roman numerals to ordinary numbering.

That done, we save the Word file as an RTF - Rich Text Format.

You then go File, Place in InDesign. I show the Import Settings I use in the video. You can choose whether to import embedded images or not, and various other importing options.

Then all the text comes in with the same formatting as it had in the Word file. Select all and click on the Paragraph Style you want in the Paragraph Style palette and there you go!
