Open Typesetting Stack: Format for Word Document

Is there a best practice formatting template for a word document which can be referred to for best results while using the Open Typesetting Stack tool? For example heading type, figure titles etc?

Hi @pcansf,

For the most part, our answer is deliberately no – we make an effort to parse a wide variety of documents based on our heuristics and training data extrapolated from real-world cases. That said, if you’re using Word input, the best advice I could give would be to actually make use of Word heading styles and captions rather than just doing your own bolding and indenting – we can make use of that internal syntax and you’re more likely to get a good parse.

Thank you @axfelix. We do use the Word heading styles.
