    turn off auto style format (97 R2)

    Whenever I type a short line and increase the font size, Word automatically changes the style to Heading 1. I've gone to the 'Autoformat as You Type' and turned off the 'Headings' box, but that doesn't help. I've gone to Tools | Options but didn't find anything there either. Where is it at?

    There are also options to de-select auto format items under the last tab - "Auto Format".

    i have 'Headings' turned off in both places. -- AutoFormat and AutoFormat as You Type

    still doesn't make any difference.

    Shot in the dark--go to Tools/AutoCorrect/Autoformat as you type & make sure that "Apply styles based on your formatting" is not selected. Also, under Autoformat as you type, select headings, close Word, reopen Word, & then turn it off...just in case it's not "taking".

    thanks, Phil, that worked (except that is says 'DEFINE styles based on your formatting'). I looked at the option before but it didnt seem like it would do what I wanted it to do. I guess I should have given it a shot
