    :confused: Using Word 03 and Windows XP Home, I am compiling a single document comprised of many separate documents. The single document must be in Times New Roman, but the others are submitted in various fonts that I alter to TNR before moving them. After Select All/Copy in the separate doc, I go to the combined doc and Paste. Many times the result is in Arial Rounded Bold (my default Word font) instead of TNR like the altered original. In one case, the original came in TNR but had two errors that I corrected. Only the corrections showed up in Arial!?! What's going on here, and how can I fix it? I never had this problem before. The last time I did this procedure, I was still using Word 2000. Is there something different in 2003 that is causing this?

    I'm amazed nobody has suggested any solutions for me on this nagging problem. Usually I get at least one reply within a few hours of posting. I'm going to try the *universal cure* -- get rid of normal.com, and see if that has any effect on the problem. It's still doing it this morning, by the way. :(

    Aha! I found an answer to my own question. It seems that Word 03 has a new wrinkle when you do a copy and paste. There is a little *clipboard* icon at the bottom of the pasted material. When you click on it, it drops down with the following choices: Keep Source Formatting, Match Destination Formatting, Keep Text Only, and Apply Style or Formatting. By selecting Keep Source Formatting, it doesn't change from the original document! This one is finally solved.
    :D
