    Inconsistent font in Bookmark Ref (2003 sp2)

    With much help from this forum, I have created a template with bookmarks, and bookmark references throughout the document. I have formatted the references with slightly different font sizes throughout the document, depending on the size of the form it is being inserted into. This works great most of the time. However, there are a few refs that produce two different fonts for the same ref code. For example, the date ref will come in with the month a bigger font than the day and year. I'm attaching the title page of the document, if someone wouldn't mind taking a look to see what I'm doing wrong and what I can do to fix it, I would be very grateful.

    It's probably caused by inconsistent formatting. Try the following:
    - Unprotect the document.
    - Select the entire paragraph with the date reference.
    - Press Ctrl+Spacebar to remove character formatting.
    - Set font size to 12 again.
    - Select the entire date reference field.
    - Set font color to red.
    - Protect the document for forms.
    When I do that, the date is formatted consistently.

    Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, it's not working for me. I've tried selecting all of the text around it, as well as just the paragraph, and it still prints the month TNR 12 and the day and year TNR 10.

    How does the attached version of your document behave?

    Your version works fine. I copied the bookmark from your version into mine, and it worked fine.

    But I can't get the misbehaving fields in the forms (tables) corrected. Do you think it could have something to do with the fact that Normal is set to TNR 10? The fields that don't work are ones that I change the font to 11 or 12. But it's not consistent.

    It usually works best if you create styles for the formatting. Direct formatting applied on top of the style formatting is overridden more easily than 'pure' style formatting.

    Hans, thank you for all of your help with this project. Creating new styles for the fields that were varying font sizes seems to have fixed the problem. My next challenge is to try to figure out what styles have been used in this document (I didn't create it) and clean it up a little bit. That is for another time when I have nothing better to do. Thank you again!
