The Style list on the Formatting toolbar may not be displayed in alphabetical order.


In Microsoft Word 97, styles are grouped by their classification. In earlier versions of Microsoft Word, they are listed alphabetically.


This functionality is a design change in Microsoft Word 97 for Windows.


Styles are displayed in the following order in the Style list:

  1. Heading styles
  2. Normal style
  3. User-defined styles
  4. Body Text styles
  5. List styles
  6. All other styles listed alphabetically

The following sample list shows how styles are ordered:

   Heading 1                 ---------+
   Heading 2                          |---------- Heading styles
   Heading 3                 ---------+
   Normal                    -------------------- Normal style
   My Favorite Style         -------------------- User-defined style
   Body Text                 ---------+
   Body Text First Indent             |---------- Body Text styles
   Plain Text                ---------+
   List Bullet               ---------+
   List Bullet 2                      |---------- List styles
   List Number               ---------+
   Date                      ---------+
   Default Paragraph Font             |
   Footer                             |---------- All other styles
   Header                             |
   Salutation                ---------+

This order cannot be changed.

For more information about styles, click the Office Assistant, type "style" (without the quotation marks), click Search, and then click on one of the topics.

NOTE: If the Assistant is hidden, click the Office Assistant button on the Standard toolbar. If Word Help is not installed on your computer, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
