Default Microsoft Word - styling


Hey All.
Problems with word - Im trying to help a friend design a long document
that contains a lot of styles, bullets and numbering. The changes I
make do not help and everything goes wrong.... I understand that the
only thing that can help are styles. Can somebody recommend a document
that may help me learn how to use styles?
Should I create a new template and copy all the document to it, or
should I change all the templates in the document? What do do?

To learn about styles, and especially bullets and numbering, here are some
references:

Should I create a new template and copy all the document to it, or
should I change all the templates in the document? What do do?


That's not how you use a template in Word. A template is supposed to be mostly a
container for styles, which then get transferred to a new document when you
create the document based on the template. This article will explain it in
detail:

If you already have most or all of the document written, and you just need to
format it with styles, then the template is irrelevant. You need to define the
styles properly _in the document_ now, and properly apply those styles to the
parts of the document. As part of this work, you may want to redefine some
styles and delete others.
