View Full Version : Word 2000 - unwanted formatting problems

15-06-2007, 01:52 PM
I'm having some problems with Word 2000 in that if I am working in Style Normal and want to bold a paragraph of text, then it bolds all of the normal text in the document. I then have to go Control/Z to get it to only bold the bit that I asked for in the first place. It also does this with other formatting commands such as bullets, underline, etc.

I can't for the life of me figure out how to turn off whatever setting is causing this problem. I do a lot of editing work this problem is wasting a lot of my time (plus making my OOS worse!)

Any solutions will be welcomed!

Thank you

In the Styles and Formatting dialogue box make sure that "Automatically update" is not ticked.

Try the <UNDO> button once. then it should not update the style.
