Hello all,

I'm popping out of lurk mode to ask for help with a Word problem. I have a short document, with a small number of styles. When I open the document, the numbered list style has lost its formatting. The number and the indent is gone. It's easy to fix--I just modify the style. The pdf comes out fine, but when I save and close, then open it again, the formatting is gone and I'm back where I started. I've had this problem before, but only happens sometimes.

Has anyone had this problem? I am using Word 2007 on an XP machine.
