    Does anyone know of a way to preserve styles when sending a document to another firm. For example, if my Heading1 is 18 pt and their Heading1 is 16 pt, which will it assume?

    Also, if I have a style named SSHeading1 and they don't have the same style in their normal.dot, what happens?

    If you send them a document then the styles should be preserved when they open it.

    The difficulty comes when they try to paste material from one document into another document that has different definitions for the same styles. If your style has a name like SSHeading1 which is unlikely to exist in their document, then it won't be changed. But if you have a style called Heading 1 and so do they (with different definitions) then it depends on how they react to the prompt they will get on pasting the text as shown below.

    Normally no problem, your style definition will remain in your document. Some metadata cleaners may remove custom styles to scrub out any source identifying information, but there's nothing you can do to prevent that.
