    Styles and Fonts ('97 and 2000)

    I am wondering if there is a way to create a style that will use the font currently in use in a document (or, at worst, use the font of the preceding paragraph). All styles I have created have required me to specify a font (e.g., Universal scalable), so if you use that style in a document in which Arial is the font, the paragraph created with the style will be Universal scalable.

    Thanks for your help.

    Regards,

    David

    David:

    If you want all styles in that doc to be universal scalable, set the normal to that. If you only want certain styles to be universal, if possible, base it off of another style using universal and you don't have to set it.

    Hi David.

    Assuming that a style is based on the Normal style, you don't have have to specify a font in your style, and instead leave the style definition at "Normal + paragraph indent" or whatever. That way, the style will use the font specified in the Normal style. If your style then is applied in a document where the Normal style has font "Arial", your style will be in Arial. However, if the Normal style in the document has an Arial font, but the user has directly formatted paragraphs to use Times New Roman, and then you apply your style, your style will appear in Arial.

    Not sure if that helps or not, but if your users know enough to change the Normal style in a document when they want to change the font throughout a document, *and* the other styles are based on the Normal style, the end result would be the behaviour you're looking for.
