The Atto Word import plugin is available from the Atto plugins directory. It can be used to import the complete contents of a Microsoft Word 2010 (.docx) file, including tables, equations, headings and other structural markup, and any embedded images.

At present, this plugin is in beta, so it may not always work. It supports .docx files only, not the older .doc format. The following Word versions support this format: Word 2007, Word 2010 and Word 2013 (on Windows); Word 2011 and Word 2016 (on MacOS). Note that files in .docm format (i.e. including macros) are not supported.

All language editions of the above versions should also work, including Chinese, Arabic, etc.

Installation and configuration

See Word import for installation and configuration details. The plugin is supported on Moodle 2.7 upwards.

This plugin is derived from work on a question import format ([Word table format]) that supports importing Word files to populate multiple entire questions, including all the text fields associated with them. If you are editing quiz questions, using this import format is probably more efficient.
