    left indent and hanging not changing for all paras (All)

    Hi

    We have just made a change to our company template where the
    left indent from -1 to -.075
    hanging from 1 to .75

    Now what I do is whenever a document is opened, I attach the new template to the document with 'Automatically update document style' set. This should update all styles with the changes described above. The funnies I have found are as follows:

    1. The very first instance of the 'Heading 1' style does *NOT* change! All other instances change correctly.
    2. Another style is a warning with box around it. In this case, *ALL* instances of this do not change!
    3. As far as I can tell - all other styles are all correct.

    Any ideas anyone? Why it should do this?
    Thanks.

    Check whether the indent for the first paragraph with Heading 1 style has been set differently than the style definition. Updating the style will not override directly applied formatting. Similar for the other style.

    Thanks for quick response Hans.

    To test out your theory I created a document using the old template (with different left and hanging indents). It still does the same, i.e. 1st instance of H1 is not updated and all 'WARNING' styled paras are not updated.

    I guess, I will just have to run a macro that resets the left and hangling indents of all styles (at least Heading 1 and WARNING).
    Thanks.

    Are you sure that the Warning style exists in the template that you are attaching?

    Yes absolutely. Both the styles exist - Heading 1 and Warning.

    As a work around, I have put a macro together which resets the left and hanging indent of paras with those two particular styles. But, the problem still baffles me.
    Thanks.
