Normal Style font

Deej Hernandez

I have Office 2007 and I am working with the Word program. I have 12 Quick
Styles sets that I work with. All documents open using the normal template.
As soon as I apply a style set to a document the normal font changes. For
two style sets normal font goes to Calibri, size 11; one set goes to Calibri,
size 18; four sets go to Calibri, size 20;two sets go to Arial, size 12; and
the last remaining set goes to Arial, size and 20.

How can I make all normal font go to Calibri, size 24 ball style sets? I
have modified Normal to those settings in every quick style set, then saved
the set again, but as soon as a document is closed and a new document opened
with a style set applied it reverts back to what it was before.

When you modify a style set the changes will NOT be applied to documents or
templates that have the style set applied. You will have to manually reapply
the style set to the documents and templates in question.

Is there any way to modify those templates then? And why do I seem to have
5 different templates for documents all based on Normal?

Have you tried reapplying the style set that you want? To do that for a
template, you will have to open it as a document (via the Open dialog box).

Think of what a style set is: the styles displayed in the Styles group of
the Home tab. Applying a different style set obviously changes the styles of
the document (or template). If you change style sets in several steps, you
may have changed a lot in the document.

For example, let's say that the currently selected style set includes styles
A, B, and C and you then apply a style set including styles A and B, what
you get in the document is styles A and B (with different formatting) in the
Styles group of the Home tab. Style C won't be in the Styles group, but its
formatting will be left intact, unless it is based on (say) style A (which
was changed when you changed style sets).
