In Word's paragraph spacing dialog, I see that there is an option to make the spacing "automatic"). This is in the "space before" and "space after" fields. What does "automatic" mean ? thanks bk

Table spacing by bubbakittee
I'm tryin to find a way to set up spacing before and after tables in a long document written with Word 2007 (or XP). I was expecting that a table would be regarded as a paragraph, and would therefore have "space before" and "space after" attributes. No such luck. The best solution I have found is...

Styleref field / non-breaking spaces by MrBudgens
The STYLEREF field seems to turn non-breaking spaces and hyphens into standard spaces and hyphens. Am I missing something here or does anyone know any workarounds? I know that cross-references will behave themselves but I can't use bookmarked text in this particular case.

Every now and then MSword decides I must want a particular heading/ styles format (this is the series of Aa Bb Cc icons that take up about 1/3 of my toolbar). I use multi-level lists extensively and all this auto formatting does is cause problems with it. I never use the heading/styles...
