    When I open Word, the settings are for Calibri (Body) 11 point font, and Multiple Line Spacing at 1.15. I change the settings to the ones I want - Times New Roman at 12 point font and single line spacing. I push the "default" button, which tells me that the change will affect all new documents using the NORMAL template, which is what I want to happen, so I click yes. Notwithstanding that, the next time I open Word to create a new document, it is back to the Calibri/Multiple Line Spacing setting. Can anyone advise how I can make my preferred setting the permanent default setting? Thanks.

    What version of Word are you running?
