I've got a problem with the Insert, Text as object function.
When Importing a new document into an open document it does not keep the font of the original or the open document, but default back to times new roman.
Any ideas?

No, it is not that, I also thought it could be that.
My default font is set to Arial, 12

No, that does not work either.
Opened the original document, select all, change it to arial, saved it.
Opened the document that I want to insert, select all, change it to arial, saved it.

Close word, open the original document again, insert, text from file, select the document I want to insert and it is back to times new roman for that piece of the merged document.

Very weird!

That is the strange thing, I have tried to save both as RTF files, with the same results.

What I'm thinking is that the original document's style is set to Times New Roman.
