If youâre a Word guru (Iâm using 2007, but this isnât really that version specific, Iâm sure), read on.

Iâm rebranding a big set of docs for a client. Iâve used Word themes to quickly change the fonts and colors. Mostly things have been smooth. Iâve had a few glitches with various steps & substeps numbered/lettered lists, but nothing that wasnât relatively easily fixed. But...

A few problem docs â they do have different section breaks for different style cover pages and ToC pages from the non-problem docs â are not behaving when it comes to paragraph spacing. Although the space before/after settings look identical to the template styles (Iâve used Reveal Formatting to be sure), physically the paragraphs are different, which no surprise means that boilerplate Copyright text that just fits in the well behaved docs is expanding to a 2nd page in the problem docs.

I can see that the âDefault Paragraph Fontâ looks different in the problem docs from the template. But I cannot figure out how to set any of the properties for it.

The font theme contains the font face, but of course nothing about the font size. Iâve defined all my paragraph styles to be based on a custom BodyText.0 paragraph style, which is based on (no style).

Iâm at a loss and would welcome any suggestions!
