Importing from Word, # of outline/heading levels that will import

    How many levels of headings will import into Jama from Word?
    Currently have 8 levels in a Word document.
    Levels greater than 6 (i.e. 7 and above) import as descriptive text at level 6.
    Headings greater than 7 are not recognized as headings.
    From this I have 1 requirement with text of many.
    Is this an import limitation?
    I believe I can import these separately at a lower level and then simply move them to the desired nested level. Is this the only work-around?

    Thanks for the quick reply, and link to related post. My search was not bringing that up.
    OK, we have a work around for importing, but it sounds like there is also a problem in producing a Word document (output) that has greater than 6 Heading levels. I'll have to output and look at impact. Maybe easily cleaned up in Word, maybe not.

    Posting an update to this thread:

    In consideration of scalability, it is now by design that you can use up to six levels of hierarchy when importing with Word.
