Converting Microsoft Word 2010 document with embedded graphics to WordPress 4.1 Page

Hi Experts,

I want to convert an 80 page User Manual from Microsoft Word 2010 to a WordPress 4.1 Page.
The document contains many embedded graphics.

Pasting directly from the .docx to a WordPress 4.1 Page handles the text OK, but does not copy the graphics.

I have tried Word's Save As html feature - this looks as though the graphics all get saved to one location and the URLs of the graphics could be edited to make them appear in WordPress.

Is there an simple way of tranferring the graphics?

Regards,
Leigh

No.  You will need to extract the graphics as separate files and embed them into the post/page.  This is one of the fundamental differences between word processing and web pages.

At least you have them in a Word file.  This would be 1000x more painful to do starting with a PDF.

If you use Microsoft Word 2010's "Save Document as a Web Page" feature all the images will be placed in a directory that you could then upload to Wordpress.  

The easiest solution would be to save the entire 80 page document as a PDF document and then upload the PDF document to Wordpress.

I found Mammoth .docx converter, a WordPress plugin.

Mammoth converts semantically marked up .docx documents to simple and clean HTML, allowing pasting from Word documents without the usual mess.

It is a bit quirky, but it converted most of my document, except .wmf files.
