Word Automatically Changes Font Size?

Recently a reader wrote to me with this problem:

" When using MS Word the program at times changes font size while typing an article. Thanks for your consideration. "

My reply:

The one piece of information that would be very helpful with this inquiry is missing -- namely, which version of MS Word the reader is using.

Generally speaking, MS Word will not change the size of your fonts in a document unless you specifically tell it to.

If you are using version 2003 or earlier, it sounds to me like you could be using a style that has a different font size or you are copying and pasting text into your document that either has a different style or font size.

If you are using the latest version of the program, MS Word 2007, your theme could cause this behavior.

In version 2007, you can quickly and easily format an entire document to give it a professional and modern look by applying a document theme. A document theme is a set of formatting choices that include a set of theme colors, a set of theme fonts (including heading and body text fonts), and a set of theme effects (including lines and fill effects).

I hope this has been helpful to you.
