Sawadee: EasiWriter and TechWriter server a rather different purpose than Impression/OvationPro. Therefore, it would be pointless to try and import their documents and it does not make any sense to compare them. For things that require complex layouts, which you can do with Impression or OvationPro, EW/TW would be useless because EasiWriter is a word processor, so there are no frames. On the other hand, they can do lots of things that Impression/OP cannot do (e.g., proper tables including cells that span several columns, footnotes, creation of a proper index, having the title of the current chapter or section automatically at the top or bottom of each page and much more). Word import is not perfect but it is pretty good as long as the Word doc does not use features that are not supported by EW/TW, e.g., graphics that do not flow with the text but are anchored at a fixed position relative to the page or the column.
