Images in Microsoft Word documents can be stored as external files. Such documents will only contain links to the files stored on a hard drive, but no images themselves.

To import a document with linked images to ClickHelp, some preparations must be carried out.

    Edit Links to Files button in the MS Word file
  • Select the images you want to convert from the list.
