Import Tool Doesn't Import Writing

The import tool would be vastly improved if it could import word documents from FA.


If it automatically read the document files and applied the correct formatting to the submissions it would be great.

I know they can't do every story type, but at least being able to import the .txt files would be great

Not to mention it would be great if you could find a way to send it over as is; most stories loaded up on FA, if formatted, will have a lot of bbcode in them. I don't know if it's possible to bring that over with markdown being used here, but it would help massively in my case. I don't look forward to porting over several hundred stories.

Ideally, the import tool would pull the document file, read it, copy and paste it into a format like SoFurry has, and then keep the document file for download as well. This would likely work with all .rtf, .doc, and .docx files if it was implemented correctly. The support can likely be extended beyond that too... it would just be nice having a site that I can copy and paste into without losing my formatting.

Is this feature not implemented yet then?

I have a lot of stories on FA, too many to upload here individually. They are all in .TXT format so being able to import those along with the cover image would be just terriffic. It would also be good if SoFurry compatibility was brought in in the future, since that is a better site for hosting stories than FA, but I think FA story compatibility should be top priority here.
