Some Paragraphs Not Changed When You Choose AutoFormat Command


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Word for Windows, version 6.0
  • Microsoft Windows 3.1


AutoFormat does not apply styles to all paragraphs of the document.


The AutoFormat option Preserve Previously Applied Styles (which is on by default) prevents AutoFormat from modifying paragraphs formatted with styles other than Normal and Body Text. (To locate this option, choose AutoFormat from the Format menu, choose the Options button, and choose the AutoFormat tab--or, choose Options from the Tools menu, and choose the AutoFormat tab.)

The Normal and Body Text styles are built-in Word styles. Style names are case sensitive, so paragraphs formatted with user-created styles named "normal" or "body text" (all lowercase) are not modified by AutoFormat when Preserve Previously Applied Styles is selected.
