    I thought I was being careful to not include the para mark in my selection, but I am getting a situation where when I try to Bold a selection in a Word 2000 doc, it bolds the entire doc.

    If I Undo it then I get just the word or selection bolded.

    thoughts??

    If you are displaying the Standard toolbar, does it show all paragraphs to be in the same style? There is an option in Word to have your direct formatting incorporated into the definition of the currently applied paragraph style, which then will apply it to all paragraphs of that style. I never used that option, so I didn't realize you could undo the automatic update.

    To turn off this feature, visit Format > Style..., highlight the relevant style and click Modify, then look for and uncheck "Automatically update" and OK out.

    Does it work?

    thx - that might have been it - I've had trouble with "Auto corrupdate" before and it was turned on somehow.
