    applied template styles bulleting (Office 2003)

    Problem - whenever I attach a template to an existing Word document, Word automatically makes certain existing styles bulleted, even though neither the pre-existing styles, nor template styles call for this.

    Examples:

    Pre-existing style script: _2:Bold : _01_Standard + Font: Bold, Indent: Left: 0.5", Space After: 6pt

    Template style script: _2:Bold : _01_Standard + Font: Bold, Indent: Left: 0.5", Space After: 6pt

    Post template apply: _2: Bold : _01_Standard + Font: Bold, Indent: Left: 0.5", Space After: 6pt, Bulleted + Level: 1 + Aligned at: 0.5" + Tab after: 0.7" + Indent at: 0.7"

    "01_Standard" is a common style I created as a baseline.

    I've turned off autobullets, thinking that might be the problem.

    Got any ideas on how to stop this "autobulleting" from happening whenever I apply a template? (see attached)

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    I fear it'll be difficult to answer your question without seeing an example of the document and template. Could you make copies of both, remove or alter all proprietary/sensitive information, put them in a zip file and attach the zip file to a reply? (Maximum file size for an attachment is 100 KB).

    Oddest thing - I deleted the styles in the template, recreated them and saved the template again, then applied the template - everything was fine - go figure...
