Automatic tabbing of headings of the same style (2003)
I have headings of different levels in a document correctly "styled" as Heading 1, Heading 2, etc. However, not all of the headings of any level are tabbed identically. How can I specify the tab setting for a style once and get it automatically applied to all the headings the style applies to? Thank you.

Re: Automatic tabbing of headings of the same style (2003)
One way to do this is as follows:
- Select a paragraph formatted with the heading style you want to modify
- Activate the Formatting and Styles task pane.
- Right-click the style name in the box near the top of the task pane and select Modify from the popup menu.
- Tick the check box "Automatically update".
- Click OK.
- Set the tabs for the selected paragraph. The settings will automatically be applied to all other paragraphs with the same style.
- It is advisable to turn off "Automatically update" again, to prevent unexpected global changes.
Another way requires that you have turned on "Keep track of formatting" in the Edit tab of Tools | Options...
- Modify the tabs in the style definition.
- Select Edit | Find...
- Leave the "Find what" box empty.
- Click More.
- Select Format | Style near the bottom of the dialog.
- Select the heading style, then click OK.
- Tick the check box "Highlight all items found in".
- Click "Find All".
- Close the Find dialog.
- Press Ctrl+Q to remove all directly applied paragraph formatting.
