Applying styles - word 2003


S

sia

Every time I select some text and apply styles, instead of applying my style
word modifies the style slightly to take account of original text. For
example if the text I want to apply style to is Times New Roman 11 and I
apply my normal style (say Aerial 12) Word applies Normal + 11 etc etc. Any
solutions would be appreciated.

Tools | Options | General: Clear the check box for "Keep track of
formatting." If you select the entire text of a paragraph before applying
the style, the font formatting should be applied along with the paragraph
properties. If not, select the paragraph and press Ctrl+Spacebar.

Hi,

This is expected. The following rules hold when you apply a paragraph style.

- If the cursor is located anywhere in a paragraph and no text is selected,
the paragraph formatting will be applied to the paragraph, the font name will
be applied to the entire paragraph, but no other character formatting will be
applied.
- If text within the paragraph is selected, the character formatting defined
in the style will be applied only to the selected text, and the paragraph
formatting will not be applied at all.
- If the entire paragraph is selected, the paragraph formatting will be
applied to the paragraph, the font name will be applied to the entire
paragraph, but no other character formatting will be applied (same as when no
text is selected).
