I've found that exporting whole documents from Word can be problematic.

Instead I highlight all the document text and export that instead, which usually works better. It also helps if you have consistently applied Word heading styles to the headings and sub-headings in the document..

I have tried to export only selected text, from word via addon "send selected p..."

As you see from picture there is styles used, MM greates headings and sub headings right but only heading "Vinkit" has note

to me whole word document importing from MM works fine, but this time I dont want it all ...58 pages which has converted from pdf no styles before I put them.

Experiment with giving the paragraphs "body text" or "normal" style in Word then import.

If I change headings to normal they dont become topics, maybe this is bug.

I also tried to export to fresh map, does not help

Paragraph refers to the text between headings. Headings need Word heading style to export to MindManager as topics.
