  • 1. Default Paragraph Font
    This is the sort of basic point that I used to understand, but I'm obviously getting more stupid in my old age. Please bear with me. My Normal style currently has a font of Bookman Old Style, 12 point. I have defined a Quotation style, which is based on Normal, but indented. When I apply the Quotation style, I get an indented paragraph in Bookman Old Style, 12 point. Fine. If I apply direct formatting to part of a paragraph in Quotation style, and then choose Clear Formatting (or Ctrl-spacebar), the font changes to Times New Roman, 10 point. Why doesn't it go back to Bookman Old Style, 12 point? In an attempt to understand this, I looked at the Default Paragraph Font "style" (which I know isn't really a style at all). It is defined as "The font of the underlying paragraph style + Font: Times New Roman, 10 pt ...". And there doesn't seem to be any way of modifying it. I thought the Default Paragraph Font was whatever font was currently defined for the paragraph style in question. How does Times New Roman come to be overriding that font?
  • 2. Can't open Word 2004 for Mac document in Word 2003 for Windows XP
    Hi... I use windows XP and Office 2003 in my office and a powerbook G4 with Office for Mac 2004 at home. I had created a word document at work and at times edited it at home and haven't had a problem...so far. I use iDisk to share the files. After my last edit at home I am now unable to open the document at work. I get the following error message: Word experienced an error trying to open these files: *Check the file permissions for the docuemnt or drive *Make sure there's sufficient memory... *Open file with the text recovery converter I checked the permissions and they seem ok, there is sufficient memory and hard disk space, and text recovery converter does open the file but deletes all the graphics and formtting. It's a 60 pge doocument and I'd go nuts trying to redo the formatting....any suggestions? By the way the graphics were only these simple flow charts and stuff...I also check the compatibilty report i\on my mac and it said ok...no problems. I would be grateful for any help here.

  • 3. Word 2004 Templates
    any resume templates in this program??
  • 4. spacing between paragraphs: before+after vs. max(before,after)
    FYI, we are still using Word 2002 here. Now for my issue, which I'll relate through the following experiment. Let's say I have a short Word document with the following three lines (all in Normal style): First Middle Last Now I select all three lines (Ctrl-A), RightClick->Paragraph..., set Spacing Before=6pt and After=6pt, OK. In some documents the result is that there are 12pts of space between "Middle" and "First" and, likewise, between "Middle" and "Last" (i.e., 6 + 6, the sum of Before & After.) Sometimes (never in the same document, but in another document) the experiment yields spacing is only 6pts between "Middle and "First" or "Last". In documents with this latter behavior the spacing is always the greater of Before or After. Is there some "secret" attribute in Word that makes it behave one way vs. another. This has driven me nuts for years. BTW, I LIKE the first behavior. Thanks in advance. Ben W

Bullet styles

Postby Sol Apache » Tue, 13 Sep 2005 16:05:18 GMT

I am preparing several templates which need a few bullet styles and I have
found that if I create a new bullet in one template the bullet dialog box is
showing bullets labelled with styles from another template altogether, and
if I select a bullet style and change it to the style I need, the style in
the other template loses its bullets.

So we have only FIVE bullet styles to use throughout our **entire** Word
documents?

Is this true? (unbelievable if it is) Is there a workaround? Is it the same
in Word for Windows? Is Microsoft looking into this?

Thanks for any help

Hi Sol:

No, it's not true.  You can have as many as 200 bullets or numbering
styles in a document.

Each of those styles can have up to Nine levels (i.e. be attached to
nine paragraph styles).  However, the user interface will SHOW you
only the 14 most recently used in the document.

You refer to "bullet styles".  That's a good name for them, but it's
not the 'correct' name for them.  Internally, they are known as "List
Templates".  That is to remove the confusion, because they are NOT
styles.  A List Template can have ONE level, if it is a "Bullet" or
Numbered" list template, or it can have Nine levels, if it is an
Outline List Template.

A List Template can have a Paragraph style associated with it (or nine
styles...)  If it has, applying the Style (using Format>Styles...)
will apply the list template.  Applying the List Template (Using
Format>Bullets and Numbering...) will apply the styles.

1. To set up extra Bulleted styles in your document, first begin by
using an Outline Numbered list template.

2. Create the styles you need.  I recommend using List Bullet through
to List Bullet 9.  These are the defaults.  List Bullet and List
Bullet 2 through 4 will already exist in the document, if you need
more, create them.  Base each one on the one before it, and set the
tabs and indents and all the paragraph and font properties.

3. Now apply the top style (List Bullet) to a paragraph.

4. Click in Format>Style>Modify>Numbering>... and choose an Outline
List template closest to the one you want to end up with.

5. Click Customise

6. Click the MORE button

7. In Attached Style choose List Bullet

8. In the narrow field at the top left of the dialog, click Level 2

9. In the Style field, choose List Bullet 2

And so on...

This associates all of your Bullet styles with the same list template.
You can then switch from one bullet list level to another in the text
by clicking the Promote or Demote buttons (Same as Indent and
Out-dent, but active if you are in a list.

When you have associated the ninth style with a list template, create
another set of styles, choose a different list template, and do it all
again, until you have enough.

If you want to get really serious, use the Macro Recorder to record
yourself while you set up a set of bullet styles.  Then edit the code
to adjust what it does when you re-run the macro.

That's the basics: come back to us if you need more.

Cheers

3.Layout - TOC, Heading Styles, Bullet Styles

We have reports that have TOC, 3 levels of heading styles, 2 levels of bullet 
styles.  How can I some how apply these individual items to a document that 
has been changed?

Is it through a style set or  template reapplication?  If template how do we 
do a reapplication?  This is in Word 2007

4.Third level bullet style corrupts other styles

In my MS Word 2003 template, I have created bullets that are to be used in 
tables. (The text in my tables is one point smaller than regular body text.) 
I used Shauna Kelly excellent instructions ow to control bullets in 
Microsoft

I have created three levels of bullets and they look great, but other styles 
(headers, footers and cover page text) have suddenly become corrupted. 

The corruption is consistent: The corrupted styles have all been formatted 
with my third level table bullet style. They use the same bullet and are 
indented by the same amount as the third level table bullet style. When I 
remove the third level bullet, the corruption goes away.

Any idea on what is causing the problem and how I can fix it?

Thanks,
Jean

5.Problems creating bullet style ?s

Using Word 2008.

My objective is to have two types of list styles: one with numbers in 
level 1 and letters in level 2 and the other with numbers in level one 
and bullets in level 2.

I have created a List Style for 2 levels and created the two Paragraph 
Styles for those 2 levels. All was working well for several weeks.

Today, I tried to create a 2 level List Style with numbers in level 1 
and bullets in level 2.

So I created two Paragraph Styles very similar to the first ones and 
then I created multi level List Style with numbers in level 1 and 
bullets in level 2 and then linked those levels to the two just defined 
Paragraph Styles.

I've done this twice and both times my original List Style no longer 
works properly. No numbers in level 1 and and no letters in level 2.

So I erased my second multi-level List Style (numbers and bullets) and 
all is working well with my single multi-level List Style.

I hope I explained this clearly.

Any tips as to what I'm doing wrong are appreciated.

Thank you.
