problems with normal.dot file
Posted on 2011-10-26
We have run into an odd situation where documents I have saved, using
the same style template as others, does not seem to be retaining the
same styles when opened on another machine.
For example, when the document is open and I check my "normal" style, it
shows calibri 11 point type.
When opened on another machine in the office, it reverts to Times New
Roman and when I check the "normal" style, it shows Times as well.
I was hoping I could just copy the normal.dot from the Application
Data/Microsoft/Templates folder from another machine, but none will
allow me to get into Application Data, so I'm assuming you will need to
do it for me.
I suspect my normal.dot may have been corrupted so is not saving the
styles on my computer somehow.
I did have the document open in Word 2000 last night, so suspect
something may have happened because of that.
