How can I stop Word 2003 automatically adding new styles?

Discussion in 'Microsoft Word New Users' started by Robert Halford, Jul 26, 2005.

  1. In Word 2003 if I make a change to a style Word automatically adds it to the
    style list - for example "Heading 1 + Italic" or "Normal + Bold" - how can I
    stop Word doing this?

    Someone said check the "Prompt to update style" checkbox in the edit
    options, but this doesn't work.

  2. It's not really a style--start with Big Idea #4 here:
    http://shaunakelly.com/word/sfpane/StylesAndFormattingPane.html

    And the rest of the page will explain what is going on.

  3. That's controlled by Tools - Options - Edit - Keep track of formatting.
