Style won't keep correct font


D

Deej Hernandez

I have Office 2007 working on a Dell Inspiron E1505 running Windows XP SP 2.
I have several personally created style sets and am having a problem with a
couple of the individual styles staying in the correct font. In one set I
have A/T 4 and A/T 5 styles. A/T 4 should be Arial, 16, Centered and A/T 5
should be Almagro, 16, Centered. Every time I select that style set for a
new document though both of the styles show up as Almagro, 16, Centered.

Any ideas on how to make A/T 4 stay as Ariel, 16, Centered? These are used
for headings on several documents and I need them to stay correct. I've
tried saving the entire set again every time I correct A/T 4 but the next
time the set is opened it's right back to the incorrect font.

Hi Deej,

You used the term "style set" in your post. If you mean template, you should
have created a .dotx or .dotm file in the \Documents and
Settings\<yourusername>\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates folder for each
template that you created. Open the .dotx or .dotm file for each template
that you created and check the Font settings for each style defined in it.
Make any necessary changes and save. Write back if you need any help in
locating these settings.

In the Modify Style dialog box, take a look at the "Style based on" option
for the affected styles. You may want to change the setting to "(no style)."
Then recreate the style set.

Very good point! Of course, it will be easier to *edit* the existing style
sets than overwriting them (which I suggested in a previous message).

On my XP system the quick style set templates are here:
C:\Documents and Settings\[userName]\Application
Data\Microsoft\QuickStyles

You can open the template and check or change the style settings.

Thank you very much, this seems to have solved the problem. Of course, I
won't really know until I have used it several times and it stays put!! I am
going through all of my QuickStyle sets now and modifying all of them so that
they are based on "no style" and the format for the following paragraph is
the same as the style being used.

But your message was clearer than my, which is why I'm glad you did reply.

True. And if I'd seen your message before I posted, I wouldn't have.
