    List of Figures Style Problem? (2k SR1)

    Hi,

    However when I use it, it comes out as Tahoma!

    Pls. can you tell me why?
    Thanks,

    You asked a very similar question in <post#=210878>post 210878</post#>. Did the suggestion of removing the h switch work for the TOC? If so then it will probably work for your list of figures too.

    You could also try changing the Hyperlink character style to include the Font you require.

    Hi musab:
    In addition to what Stuart has mentioned, you can add the charformat switch so that the field codes look something like this:

    { TOC c "Figure" * charformat }

    See the "T" from TOC is in italics. The charformat switch will make the TOF italic because the first letter is italic. Therefore, if you make the "T" TNR, everything will be in TNR. By the way, the TOF is generally based on normal, not necessarily TNR. Also, it picks up any direct formatting that is applied to the caption, so if you've applied Tahoma to your captions, your TOF will be in Tahoma.
    Cheers,

    Thanks Stuart,

    Changing the Hyperlink character style did the trick.

    Hi Stuart:
    I've never had the problem of my TOC changing fonts when I use the h switch. I wonder if our settings are different. Do you have the hyperlink or TOC style (or Heading style) defined differently than the default?

    Phil,

    I don't have the problem either, I was guessing based on the fact that the Hyperlink character style would be applied and this could cause the symptoms described...

    Re: List of Figures Style Problem? (2k SR1)

    Hi,

    By removing the "/h" yes it solves the problem, but permanently!
    My problem is I don't want to remove the /h permanently as I need the hyperlinking facility.

    I just want to solve the problem of it becoming Tahoma.
    Even if I do it to the template file and save it, when I open a new doc. based upon the template, the Tahoma is back.

    Pls. advise.
    Thanks,

    m.q.

    You don't have to remove the h switch; put it back in. You can use the charformat switch as I described in <post#=213628>post 213628</post#>. Furthermore, if your TOC is coming out Tahoma, it's probably because your headings have Tahoma applied as direct formatting. Don't apply direct formatting to your heading styles. You can tell if they have them by pressing Shift+F1 & then clicking the arrow on a character in your heading. Remove the direct formatting by selecting your headings & pressing Ctrl+Spacebar.

    Hi,

    I tried this but failed. I have attached the Template File now for your perusal.
    Pls. download this DOT file and Edit it as you need & tell me how you fixed it.

    Thanks!
    You will find the Heading Levels 1 to 5 & 2 captions in the main document.
    At the top of the page where Word autogenerates the TOC and list of Figures/Tables, you will see they are Tahoma.

    Help!!!

    Hi musab:
    Go to Format/Styles.../Hyperlink/Modify.../Format/Font... & change Tahoma to TNR. Then OK, OK, & close. Your TOCs pick up the hyperlink character style, which is Tahoma. You can either leave off the h switch from your TOC, TOF, etc. so that the hyperlink style isn't applied, or you can change the definition of Tahoma as mentioned above.
    Cheers,

    Later: I took off a u switch in the TOC, which you can put back in if you want. I could not find it documented anywhere & don't know what it does.

    Alternatively, I've attached a corrected zip file in which I fixed the TOC only (not the TOFs) by using the * charformat switch that I mentioned in my first post.
