I have recently started to use Word 2007. Specifically I am editing 2 documents side by side. I edit from the right and drag the edit words into the document on my left. Always, the text that has been "dropped" comes up as 10.5 or 12.5 in font size, having left the source page as a whole font size! There is no indication of such a font size and I need to alter it every time.

I have looked at the Word Options - Advanced Options but can see nothing about my problem. I have checked the template and it is fine.... no half size on the Normal.doc.

Any thought would be appreciated. TIA

ok using word 2003 here so I am not going to be exact with the wording but I am sure the same thing will work.

If you go in format then choose font there should be a box that shows you what the font is set as, then as you say there is a drop down box with whole numbers to choose from.

In the initial box , lets say it says 12. you can change the by typing over it to 12.5 or whatever you want. you can then set that as your default.

Thanks I am aware of that. Maybe I didn't make myself clear enough. The font size that results from my dropping in the revised text into my new document is always in a half (point five) size. It leaves my source document as a whole number. Its not the end of the world to alter it as you say, but it is very annoying.

What is the default font in your Normal.dotx template? Check to see if it isn't something with a 12.5 size.

Have checked and it is definitely Courier size 10. No half sizes present anywhere in the drop down font size menu!
