Styles spontaneous changes

Copper Contributor

I am using the Styles feature in WORD for section titles in a large [500 page] document at irregular intervals WORD spontaneously changes the settings in multiple Stypes.  Does anyone know why or what to do about  this?

If large parts of the document pick up the formatting applied to a small text range, then "Automatically update" may be the culprit. You can turn it off in the Modify Style dialog box, for one or more paragraph styles. For details, see


If the issue appears to be something else, please post back. 

Thank you
