# styles in 2003

#### sia

I am using word 2003. When I copy text from another doc and apply the styles
in my document, the text does not take on the style of my document but
retains some of the style from the other document. For example, if the other
document is in ariel 12 and I apply my normal (ariel 11) to the text, the
style that word applies is "normal plus 12".

Direct formatting (that is, formatting not stored in a style) will be
preserved as you paste text from one document to another. Select the text
and press Ctrl+SpaceBar (to clear direct font formatting) and then press
Ctrl+Q (to clear direct paragraph formatting).
