Default Set default font in Word 2002

I want to set a default fond in Word 2002 - Previously I would go into a word
document choose format, font, choose my settings and choose default and it
would default to that each time. However in Word 2002 it will default until
I close word then I have to repeat it each time I re-open. Is there
something I am missing?

Is Adobe Acrobat 7.0 installed on the computer? If so, there is a
conflict between Acrobat 7.0 and Word that prevents Word from
automatically saving changes to the normal.dot template, which is where
the default font information is stored. Set the default font again, and
click "Shift+File | Save All" to force Word to save the normal.dot template.

Basically, you just have to open Word, change to the font that you want (you
can even pick a larger size font too). When you have all your changes ready,
simply go under FILE on the menu bar and pick SAVE-AS. You will want to
SAVE this new document with the name:

normal.dot

You'll have to agree to overwrite you existing normal.dot file, but then
when you open Word each time in the future .... it will have your saved font.

I hope this helped!
