Hi All,

I have run into a new problem with Word, 2010 and honestly have no idea how to fix it.

I have some isolated bits of text that are suddenly appearing with the incorrect font applied. I try updating the style, selecting and pressing Ctrl+Space, changing the font manual... NOTHING works! The font remains. I've verified that Track Changes is turned off.

I must manually DELETE the character, and then retype it, and THEN the correct font is applied!

Has anyone ever had this problem before?

Have I missed something?

Thanks in advance!
