I have a formatting problem with Word 2008. I write advices using numbered and indented paragraphs and subparagraphs. With Word 2008, if I change the indentation level (increase or decrease) of a single paragraph, every other paragraph in the document follows suit. It is necessary to press [Apple=X] so as to get the other paragraphs to revert to their previous level and format. This is irritating, but if I overlook the [Apple=X] step, some time later I find that the formatting of paragraphs that were out of sight has been ruined. I have never been able to understand the way Words formatting protocols work (they seem to be associated with the carriage return (^p)), but this behaviour is too much. I am ready to give up, and revert to Word 2004. Is there a way to switch off this behaviour?
