Hello, all; 
We are in the process of converting older Word documents into FrameMaker. 
After stripping and cleaning unwanted old Information Mapping formatting 
from Word, saving as RTF . . .
When I import one of the RTF files into our new FrameMaker template file, 
the old document comes in as a Text Inset and not as the desired RTF . . . 

We use File | Import.  And select  "Retain Source File Formatting" so we 
can use  a Find and Replace on the standard para Styles from Word to the 
new Tags in FM template. 
However, after importing, because it comes in as a Text Inset, I then have 
to select  the Text Inset Properties from the Edit menu, 
and convert to text. 
When we do this, we loose all text in the tables. 

How can I import text from an RTF file so that it comes in as RTF and not 
as a Text Inset? 
Is there a properties setting, somewhere?
