    look at the tool bar
    mine has a box that says normal
    click the arrow
    see the special formatting for headers etc

    if they are wrong then change the values you want there

    if they are right then verify that you have them set where you think you do on the document

    if both fail then
    cut and past the entire thing into wordpad
    get rid of all formatting

    open the document as a document
    check and if necessary then edit the normal.dot file to be what you want for headings and formatting values

    then reenter the formatting where you want it by using the formatting not changing the font size manually for each textblock. let the formatting change it by applying the correct style to each header etc.

    I hope you are not using the Master Documents "feature."

    If you are, close out of Word. Using Windows, copy each component part to a separate folder. Copy all of those to a backup that can be separated from your computer.

    Write back.
