While formatting a Word document, I applied the action, "Apply style to body to match selection".

The document ended up looking very wrong with the formatting all over the place - it even affected the numbers inside tables.

I'm not sure what happened or how to correct this.

1 Answer 1

You've changed the styles in your document, but you can always modify them back:

  1. Either change the affected styles if you know which they are, as explained in Modify a style.
  2. Or, as you say you have backup documents, copy the affected styles from the backup, as explained in Using the Organizer to Manage Styles.
