(These steps happen together, so it appears to be one step to the user.) The first thing that occurs is the selected paragraph is changed.
Many people use fields in Word without even realizing it because so many of Word’s features automatically insert and modify fields.
You can check for updates for your Microsoft Office Suite 2003, 2007, 2010, and 2013 using Microsoft's Windows Update Tool.
One of the best ways to keep your Microsoft Office Suite up to date is to enable automatic updates.
(The Automatically Update check box in the Modify Style or Define Style dialog boxes controls this feature.) There are times when you may want to make a change to a paragraph and you don't want the change to automatically update the style used in the paragraph.
If you find yourself in this situation, you don't have to go into the Modify Style dialog box and turn it off. The reason this works is that a change to a style that uses the Automatically Update setting is actually a two-step process.
