I have Word document that went through multiple version (in Sharepoint). One of the authors downloaded a copy and make changes and sent me the document via email. Is it possible to add that new document as a new version in Sharepoint. I can copy and paste the document but some of the elements do not paste correctly. Any ideas?

If the library has versioning enabled, you can simply upload the document with the same file name as the existing document in the library. The upload dialog will present you with a tick box to add as a new version to existing files. Make sure this box is ticked, then you should be fine.
