    Corrupt styles in template? (2000)

    I have created a template which contains custom macros, autotext, toolbars and styles. I have shared this template with several members of our organization and it seems to be working fine for everyone except one person. When this person open the template itself, or creates a new document which is based upon that template, the custom styles appear as boxes on the styles menu. Curiously, other non-custom styles appear normally on the list. Any ideas as to why this is happening?

    Thanks!

    Perhaps you used a font that is not installed on his PC?

    Otherwise, point this person to Phil Rabichow's <!post=Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (97/2000),197827>Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (97/2000)<!/post>.

    Thank you, Hans. I will try these techniques and see what happens.

    The problem ended up being simpler than I thought: the user was missing a font that was inherent in the template I was sharing. I copied the fonts on a network drive and installed the fonts on that user's machine. All is well now. Thanks again!
