    Easy way to bring in word document to be formatted in Revit?

    Hello all,

    Is there a way to bring in a word document and have the text box be formatted? We usually keep out specs in a word document that we edit slightly for each project. Then copy the whole lot, go into CAD and paste it into a pre-formatted text box that automatically makes columns. It doesn't seem like Revit has this feature??? Is there an app or something that can do this?

    Thank you

    Simplex package can read .docx files. It doesn't get any of the formatting. What I have done is look for patterns in the text and use FormattedText class in the API.
