import a Word Doc as text

Since FM is still so lousy at formatting text in a field, I am trying to import text from a Word doc into a field. So far I've read in Discussions that (1) Filemaker can't import Word docs; (2) the field needs to be a container; (3) you need a plug in (with a link to 360Works Scribe).

I have tried the container route and I can import the Word doc but it simply shows up as an icon. I've tried the doc as: docx, txt, rtf, and docm; all show as an icon.

If anyone knows if (and if "yes", how) this can be done I would love to know.
