I am using Word 2010, trying to format a document in a prescribed format.
With previous versions of Word, if I highlighted a word, sentence,
paragraph, bulleted item, etc., I could use the format painter to copy every
detail of the format to a new section of text.
With Word 2010 very little of the original format is copied over, maybe the
font, or font size, but never the indenting, bulleting, etc., which was what
made format painter so useful. In fact sometimes it changes the font to
something totally unrelated to either the copy from or copy to text. I have
reinstalled office, and done a repair, but this is my only issue.
Is there a setting somewhere that I have to change to make sure that ALL the
formatting copies to the new text?
And I do know you can copy then used the drop-down paste format only option,
but I would like the format painter to work as it should.
