Default Color Modes

Hey All,

When I import word docs into other programs the color of the font is being read as RGB. However, the files I'm creating are for print and need to be in CMYK. Is there way to change the color mode to CMYK in the original word document?

Word works with RGB only. When sending the output to printers using CMYK, the print driver does the required colour conversion - a trivial undertaking.
