Import pages from other applications

Postby concept » Wed Mar 25, 2009 10:33 am

Is there a way to import pages created in MS Word, Power Point or any other application? Alternatively, is it possible to copy paste from any of the mentioned applications.

Thank you.

Unfortunately there is not a mechanism to import any file formats into ProtoShare at this time. We are focusing our efforts on creating a very easy-to-use, quick layout editor. Once we are satisfied with that we will start exploring options for import and export.

Microsoft formats like Word and PowerPoint are historically difficult to deal with because they are complex. Word, for example, adds a lot of additional, unnecessary HTML code which can be very difficult to automatically clean up. And whether it's import or cut and paste, it's the same thing. We have to write parsers to convert their code to ours.
