A simplistic method of dealing with this is to create a template
document with the various block formats you use. Make it a read-only
so you don't inadvertently edit them. Then copy and paste as needed to
the working document.<<

An even easier way is to record your commonly used tables (including block formats) as autotext in the template. I do this with table formats all the time because Word's default table format is just plain ugly. I give them obvious names, like 2-column table, 3-column table, step-action table, sidehead block, etc., and use the type-and-accept autotext feature in Word to create the tables. When I get really ambitious, I create toolbar buttons for each of the autotext entries.
