Release: WordsFlow 3.1 for InDesign CS6, CC2019-2021

April 28, 2021 by

This release adds a footnote/endnote import option and fixes a number of reported issues.


  • Adds a Format Footnote and Endnote Spacing checkbox to a new Footnote/Endnote tab in WordsFlow’s built-in Word filter’s Import Options dialog. When selected, an imported footnote is formatted with the Separator specified in the document’s Footnote Options dialog (Type > Document Footnote Options…). Likewise, an imported endnote is formatted with the Separator selected in the document’s Endnote Options dialog.

    When deselected, the footnote and endnote spacing of the imported Word document is preserved.

    This new checkbox is selected by default so that imported footnotes and endnotes will have the same separators as those imported with Adobe’s Word filter.

  • Preserves leading values in exported Word files.
  • Fixes a problem that could cause imports of Word documents saved with the online version of Microsoft Word to fail.
  • Fixes a problem where importing a Word document containing a duplicate style name could fail with a “TypeError” message.
  • Fixes a problem where importing a duplicate style would correctly use InDesign’s style definition but then leave any elements created for the imported style (colors, mainly) in the document. Such unused elements are no longer left in the document.
  • Fixes a “couldn’t process color” failure when importing a Word document containing a LAB-style color that couldn’t be translated to an RGB-style color. Such out-of-range LAB colors are now clipped at an RGB color’s maximum intensity.
  • Fixes a problem with Export with WordsFlow… that would remove toggled bold and italic faces from the resulting Word file.
  • Fixes a problem with importing files saved by older versions of Word containing footnotes styled in a non-standard way.
  • Fixes a problem with Export with WordsFlow… that could cause it to fail with a “KeyError” message if the document contains a character style named “Default Paragraph Font.”
  • Fixes link updating to allow the introduction of index markers into a document that previously had none instead of failing with a “TypeError” message.
  • Fixes Export with WordsFlow… to work with incomplete font information instead of failing with an “IndexError” message.
  • Fixes field names and default values when using Other… entries in the Import Options dialog.
