Word doc's Normal style gets redefined with different users

Word doc's Normal style gets redefined with different users

Post by Jan C » Thu, 03 Jul 2003 10:55:09


I'm writing documents on my home PC for a corporate project. My Normal
style, on which every other font is based, is Arial 11pt. When I take the
document (on CD or email) to the company and open it in their Word, their
Normal style of Times Roman 12pt takes precedence, and my whole document
gets reformatted accordingly -- creating quite a mess. Each time, I have to
redefine "my" Normal style on the corporate PC's Word. I want to be able to
email them documents that open properly.



I don't have the "automatically update" box checked in my document, and I
have added Normal to the template before saving. What can I do to make my
formatting stick when it's opened elsewhere?

What might help is to make sure that the template attached to your document
is a custom one, not Normal. For good measure, choose a name that is not
likely to be duplicated on another user's machine (such as "Jan's
Template").
