Default Why does changing one paragraph style update all paragraph styles.

If I add a bullet before a paragraph, all paragraphs are given a bullet until
I press Ctrl-Z. If I center a paragraph, all paragraphs are centered until I
press Ctrl-Z. After Ctrl-Z, the paragraph I originally altered retains the
change, but a person can hit Ctrl-Z just so many times a day before going
crazy. This happens in all new documents, not just in specific documents.
Any suggestions?

Greg,

I appreciate the reply. Based on your information, I discovered (I believe)
that the solution was not exactly that described by the article. The
autoupdate box was not checked, so I left it unchecked but did check the "add
to template" and saved the template again. That seemed to solve the problem.
Thanks a million.
