Announcement from Martin Wuerthner, 11th October, 2013
The improvements to .docx import include: headers and footers import, cropped images, sub/superscript, hyperlinks (to bookmarks and external URLs), paragraph borders and background colours, much improved table import with column widths and multiple text paragraphs in table cells.
The new HTML4/CSS export allows documents to be rendered much more accurately by web browsers (e.g., at the document’s original font size, with paragraph backgrounds and borders and paragraph spacing as set up in the document), and it even allows users who are familiar with CSS to edit the exported style sheet for further stylistic refinement.
Details about the improvements can be found on the EasiWriter and TechWriter page on the MW Software website.
