Word changing font on Field text with Cross References
Posted on 2009-02-19
I am trying to get WORD to work for me and not against me and everyone knows what a fun time that is. I am trying to use the Field text with bookmarks and cross references to have the word document auto update the client name throughout my client's contract. The name appears in about 10 locations and I just want it to auto fill this data.
It's working but not quite. The cover page uses a font size of 18, but I don't want the client name to be in a font size of 18 in the other areas of the document. I select the cross reference areas and select a font size of 11.
Now here is the fun part. After I lock the page and then edit that field, if the clients name is only one word, it does it fine and preserves the font size and face in the other sections of the word document. (ie it puts the clients name at size 11 and not size 18 thorughout my document). But wait, if I put two words or more, so there are spaces, then the first word in the cross reference stays at size 11 but all following words are at a size of 18 like the original text on the cover page)
This has to be a bug in microsofts product, but does anyone know a way around this?
