Question about styles and defaults


J

Jeff

I am very new to Word 2007 but very familiar with W 2002.

I have a Word 2002 document that I opened in Word 2007.

I also started a new document in Word 2007 and would like to use the
same fonts, heading styles, etc. How do I transfer these settings to
the new document in Word 2007 (which presently has weird default fonts
like "Calibri" and no default Heading 3, etc.).

I prefer the settings I am used to in Word 2002 and would like to
transfer them to Word 2007.

Thank you, Jeff

If you are saying that you want to use the factory defaults of Word 2002
(and 2003)? If so, do the following: In Word 2007, create a new, blank
document, for example by pressing Ctrl+N. Click the Home tab. Click Change
Styles | Style Set | Word 2003. Then click Change Styles | Set as Default.
If/when you are prompted to save the Normal template, choose to do so.

Thank you, that helps.

However I realize I had default customizations in my Word 2002 setup, or
at least in that document (Heading and text styles, page margins,
paragraph settings, etc.). Is there a way to save the styles, etc. of
that document and transfer them for use in Word 2007?

Thanks.

You can copy the relevant styles to your normal.dotm template. Use the
Organizer, which you can open by clicking the Import/Export button in the
Manage Styles dialog box (to open the dialog, press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S; in
the Styles pane, click the Manage Styles button).

Thank you very much for taking the time to help.
