Okay, I don't know if I'm stupid or not, you all know I have trouble with the computer, but this problem is driving me absolutely nuts and I've been on Word Help for about an hour with no clear answer.
It seems for some reason, after I've gotten a document back from someone else (crit partners in this case) all my formatting for whatever doc. I'm working on automatically CHANGES to what they use.
I used to have a 0.5" indent for my paragraphs, now it's 48 px. What is that? I don't want it, don't care about it, I want my 0.5" back. It's what I know, what I've used, what I like.
I've tried to clear my formatting. It isn't working. I've tried going into the drop down menu, that doesn't seem to work either. I've gone into paragraphs, into tabs, used the ruler, nothing is working.
Can someone please tell me how to format my ^%$* manuscript to the way I used to have it? My margins are off, my ruler is off, my tabs are all screwed up. ARGH!
And why does my style automatically change to someone else's? I can't work on my new doc. because I can't get an indent to a paragraph.
And what is up with my ruler? It's out of whack. Question -- I recently changed out my old Dell 14" monitor to an 18.5 (which I think I seriously hate, could that be why I'm having all this trouble? doubt it, but worth the question.)
Also, what the hay-zoo do I have to do to completely CLEAR all the formatting and start all over again?
Does anybody have a clue? Can anybody help me before I drive myself completley insane.
