    OK, I can see that its useful if you're just defining one style. Perhaps I overreacted in thinking that I could define several styles and jump back and forth between them. That's what I inferred from...

    Thanks Pam for keeping after this with your usual gusto.

    Thanks for the idea Charles. That sounds more promising. I don't know what "style sets" are but I will pursue it. I'm tired of list styles.

    Trouble defining new multilevel list style

    I know this topic has gotten a LOT of Q and A, and I have studied it to no end, but I'm still having trouble!

    I need outline-numbered headings i.e. 1 Heading 1, 1.1 Heading 2, etc. No problem. I...

    numbered cut-in headings

    Actually, I find that the numbered para attributes work OK, if the style separator is used as suggested above. But editing and making changes is pretty flakey, and I struggle some with it.

    Numbered cut-in headings (Word 2010)

    Heading styles traditionally were paragraph-only styles, meaning that all your headings had to be on a line by themselves. When I needed a cut-in heading (in which the text continues on the same...

    Old windows games won't run on Windows 7

    I love the old games of Freespace and Minesweeper, the ones that came out (probably?) with Win98. With Vista came new "sytlized-up" versions that I don't like--they are too fancy, harder to read, are...
