Default Define fixed font in Word document

Dear Community


I have a normal Word document (no form, no textboxes or things like that) and would like that a user of the document can only write in the document with the font "Arial", Size 11. After the user wrote a text, it shall be immpossible for him to change the font. "Arial" is the only font to use in the whole document. How can I do that? Do I have to use VBA? The user shall be able to format the text to "bold" and back.


Thank you so much!




Michael

Use Word's editing restrictions to limit the Styles the user can employ (Developer|Restrict Editing>Limit formatting to a selection of Styles). Provided you define the Normal Style as 11pt Arial, then permit use of only the Normal and Strong Styles, that should achieve what you want.
