    Styles losing formatting (2003)

    I have set up a number of styles in my Normal.dot file in Word 2003. The bullet and numbering styles keep losing their indent and bullet or numbering. I can not work out why. I have made sure that each style is not dependent on another style. I have also made sure that "Auto Update" has not been selected on each style, but the styles keep re-setting themselves. Other styles are maintaining their formatting, so it could not be a system rule that replaces the Normal.dot file. Any ideas?

    Are the indents that are resetting themselves negative indents? That seems to be a Word weakness. If you're having that problem, I'm sorry to hear it's carried forward into Word 2003.

    I should also have noted (especially if your problem isn't with negative indents) that you may find this Shauna Kelly article useful.

    Thanks for the feedback. The article was very informative.

    I am not sure what you mean by "Negative Incidents".

    Indents, not incidents. Negative indents, as in indents with a value less than zero (i.e., indents that move you left of the left margin; sometimes referred to as "outdents").

    Oh my goodness! How dumb am I? What a blond moment!

    None of the styles are negative indents.
