I'm running Microsoft Office XP Small Business which has Word 2003.

I need to know what the Original Default settings were in for Paragraph Formatting, specifically: Indentation: Special: 1st Line.

Mine currently reads .5 inches, but I think I may have changed it. I've already gone in and deleted, then restarted my computer to (supposedly) reset to the default, and it still comes up .5 inches. Is that what it's supposed to be or not?

Somewhere I read that Adobe can prevent this from happening. Don't know if that's true or not, but all I want to know if what the original default is supposed to be.

Does anyone still have an original Word 2003

You didn't understand my question. I don't want to replace it. I've already tried that and I don't know if it went to original settings or not. I just want to know what it's supposed to be! – Jan Jardin Jan 26 '12 at 17:38
@JanJardin Is there any reason why, immediately after replacement, the settings might not be the default ones? – pnuts Jan 1 '13 at 8:00
