    Morning all,

    I'm trying to set up templates in Word 2007. Since the whole template thing seems to have changed (where has Normal gone?) I figured I'd start off by modifying the standard template. It gives some quick links at the top so you don't even need to customise your own buttons. Handy, I thought.

    But every time I modify a style then specify that I want to be able to use the style in all new docs (Open styles dialogue from the Home section of the ribbon > Select desired style, e.g. Heading 1 > Modify > In Modify Styles dialogue, check "New Documents based on this template") I find that when I close the dialogue then re-open it, the selection has reverted to "Only in this document".

    Can anyone tell me why this is happening and what I can do to change this?
