    Styles Hangs my PC (Word 2002 SP2)

    Hi All,

    I have a word document that hangs when I try to use the styles - either by the styles dropdown box on the formatting toolbar or via Format, Styles and Formatting ...

    I've attached the document to a template that isn't stored in the template directory - it is stored in the same directory as the document - is that a problem? I've tried to open the file with repair - same problem. I've tried to copy the text into a new document that had the styles pane visible - same problem.

    Help!

    Hi Tim:
    You might also try saving it as an .htm file, & then back to a Word doc.
    Cheers,

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by HansV on 10-Nov-03 22:06. Corrected typo (.thm instead of .htm))</P>I fear that the document has become corrupt. You might try saving the document as a .rtf document, then as a Word-document (.doc) again, or as a .htm file, then as a Word document again.

    If a copy of the document with some dummy text instead of the real contents has the same problem, you might consider posting this copy.
