Can I change the default style of Word documents in Shareponit?

Posted on 2011-10-14

We have SharePoint Server 2007 and use SharePoint for our intranet.  New Word documents created in the Sharepoint libraries have the default Word 2010 styles.  They do not start with our network default Word 2010 custom style of single spacing and smaller margines and Ariel 11 font. Any ideas on how to fix Sharepoint?

    Here is how to change it at a Library level. Look at the "Specify a custom template" section:

    Thanks - I got the default changed on one library. Let me know if you find a global fix.  Note on the microsoft instructions on the link provided by iessc7 above, when you click on the "edit template" link and make the change to the document style - save the document as a regular Word 2003 document - not a template document.  (even though they refer to it as a template).
