copy & paste between documents changes spacing

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
Processor: Intel

Hi. I have a curious issue with Microsoft Word that i can't seem to find a reasonable explanation for. Basically, i write a newsletter for my farm every week and i have a masthead that is a table. When i attempt to copy the table to a brand new document (in order to create a brand new newsletter), the spacing between the lines has totally changed. The table is twice as wide, as if i had put a blank space between each line of text. This has happened with other documents as well. For instance, I created a checklist using forms. When I have copied and pasted that checklist into a new document, the spacing between the lines have changed. I'm not really sure where to look at how to change the spacing so it is consistent from one document to the next. Could anyone help me? <br><br>thanks so much, <br>

Hi Quin:

What paragraph style is applied to the text?

What formatting does the paragraph style have?

What is the most recent update you have applied to Office 2008?

I suspect you are looking at a difference between the formatting of the
style concerned between the two documents.  When you paste, the text should
adopt the formatting of the style in the destination document.

Cheers

There are several possible reasons, all of which would be avoided if you'd
crate a Template from which to generate each new edition of the newsletter.

XY marker change for entire workbook
Is there a way to change the markers for data series across several charts within a workbook? I have been given A LOT of charts to make consistent and was wondering is there is a way to apply a certain marker style to an entire data series across several charts. Each chart is made from one data sheet in the workbook, but placed on a separate page within the workbook. You would need to use a macro to loop through the charts, changing the markers. For example Sub ChangeMarkers() Dim cht As Chart Dim srs As Series For Each cht In ActiveWorkbook.Charts For Each srs In cht.Series...

Modification dates change when moving/copying between hard-drive and flash drive
