DNG - Word Import style property that determines 'Heading;


Sean F (1.1k12337) | asked Oct 02 '18, 9:08 a.m.
I am importing a Word doc.
The Level 5 paragraphs (under the Heading 4 headings) use the Heading 5 style so that the paragraphs will be numbered in Word.
When I import the doc these Level 5 paragraphs come in as Level 5 Headings
I want to change the Heading 5 style in the Word doc so that the DNG word importer will treat them as requirements and not headings
What property of the Heading 5 style is DNG using to determine that this line should become a Heading artifact?
Can this property be changed (or can the style be replaced in Word?) so that these level 5 paragraphs are treated as requirements by the DNG importer.
Or is there a way to filter the level 5 artifacts in DNG after importing so that the artifact type can be changed?

Actually on second thoughts I need to do the conversion after the import because the heading style is giving structure to the sub-paragraphs and sub-sub-paragraphs.
So I need to be able to filter on the level 5.6.7 headings in the imported module and then convert them to requirement artifacts.

I found that you can use MS Word Replace function to globally replace styles throughout a document so I can convert the headings to Normal before import.
I lose the hierarchical structure of sub-paragraphs but that can be reconstructed inside DNG or just left flat.

Simply use MS Word Replace function to replace styles throughout a document then convert the headings to normal.
