That is something that is needed too. I haven't used the filters in a
while though, so I am not sure it they still are as "bad" as the used
to be.

I would like the filters to import the text keeping the styles by
name, but not adding styles to Scribus but using available styles. And
a setting to either discard styles not already present or import them.
I guess the same option would be useful also for direct formatting.

Something in the line of setting up rules:

Office style____________ In Scribus
Standard______________Map to Body text
Heading 1_____________Map to Main heading

other styles: Map to Scribus style with same name (discard if no style
has same name)

direct formatting: Bold____Map to Enhanced
direct formatting: other____discard
