Default Format Bold in one line makes all lines bold

Hello!



Ive got a document in word 2010. The whole page is in Normal font. If I highlight one line and type Ctrl+B, ALL the lines go bold, not only the one I highlighted. To get the other lines back to normal again I have to type Ctrl+Z.

Is there any setting I can change to prevent this happening? I just want the single line to be in format bold and not all the other lines.

Nitte

Hi
It sounds like you have your "Normal" style set to "Automatically Update". So when you change any text that has a normal style attached to it, it will change any text that has a normal style.
You need to go into the style setting and untick the "Automatically Update" option.
