    Style notifications in Word 2010

    In the Office.com Word help, it says

    ---
    Prompt to update style Specifies that Word prompts you when you directly modify text that contains a style and then select the same style again. When prompted, you can either update the style based on recent changes or reapply the formatting of the style.
    ---

    Now does this mean that any time I change something [formatting] it will change the style, and either notify me, or not? Or does this mean that it will make the change to the style or only this specific document?

    Generally it means that it will change the style in that document. I certainly prefer being prompted to automatic updating but I try to do my modifications of styles through the modify dialog.

    Yea, I don't like a lot of "automatic" things happening. It always seems that the logic used to decide is different than that I would use!
