Copying heading styles to template


K

Hi,

I have a number of heading styles that I wish to copy to a template so that
whenever I open a Word document it uses this format for my headings. I have
gone to Tools > Template and Add-Ins > Organizer > Styles and copied the
relevnat headings to my normal.dot file. When I then open a word docuement
the correct heading style is applied APART from the colou r whcih remains
black rather than the blue colour in my heading style.

Does anyone know why this may be?

Any help gtarefully appreciated!

cheers,

Thanks Stefan,

Yes, the style is based on the 'Normal' style, which is black font. The
style of 'Heading 3' should change the colour to blue though. I have tried
copying across the Normal style just to check but I still have the same
problem..

I have noticed, however, that when I select the text and apply the style to
it in the new document, the colour changes to the correct colour i.e. blue-
it just needs me to do it manually for some reason. Is there any reason that
you know of as to why the colour wouldn't change automatcially?

Thanks,

Perhaps direct formatting was applied to text in the target document? As
you've seen, reapplying the style would take care of that. Another method is
to select the text and press Ctrl+SpaceBar (which explicitly clears direct
font formatting).
