You can import information into your Project by using the import function. Information can be imported from a MS Word .docx file or from one of your other Projects.
To start the import process select Import File/Project from the menu. You will then see the popup below:
When importing from a MS Word .docx file only Chapters and Assets can be imported.
The import uses the Heading 1 (or Heading1) style to indicate the name of an item. In addition for Assets you should prefix the name with the object name and a colon, for example:
If the <Asset>: prefix is not present in the Heading 1 text then the text is assumed to be the name of a Chapter.
All the text up to the next Heading 1 is assumed to be the Chapter content or the description for Asset.
An example document outlining the styles and prefixes to use can be found here.
You can also import Chapters/Assets from other Projects, to do so select the Import from a Project option. A list of your Projects will then be displayed:

The final step is to decide what you wish to do with the selected items, either create a new Project or bring the items into your current Project. Note: if any of the Assets already exist in your Project then the description from the will be appended to the end of the Asset description.
