What is the best way to import Word files into ZWCad? We always have to re-edit the text cause things get added or lost in the translation.

The best method I have found is to save the Word doc in RTF (Rich Text Format) and then import using MTEXT. Formatting is preserved and colour, fonts etc. are rendered accurately.
any other suggestions?
