It's not the actual file (I can't share that with you, due to confidentiality reasons), but it's an example of the problem I'm having. Here's what I did to create it:
1. Open Word 2007.
2. Create a new plain text content control. Enter "Test Phrase" as its value.
3. Select the entire content control by double-clicking on the little blue tag that appears on it's left side.
4. Apply the "Heading 1" style.
5. Go a few lines down and insert a Style Reference to Heading 1. (Insert->Quick Parts->Field...->StyleRef->Heading 1->OK.)
I need those brackets in the style reference removed!
