Revealing Styles used in Word

While working with Word styles, you might want to have them displayed in the document window of Word itself. Try this:

Display style names in the document window.

1. Switch to View: Normal view if you are in a different view.

2. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the View tab.

3. In the Style Area Width: box, enter a positive measurement, for example, "3.5" cm. Word will display the style name in the style area pane to the left of your document.

Note: This option is available in Normal view only.

(See below for a special note)

If you are a mouse user, you may also adjust the width of the Style area width by "grabbing" the border and moving if left or right as indicated below.

Special Note:

Have you spotted the potential problem with the Styles used in the main screen shot were the document to be imported into DBT?

A "Header" Style has been incorrectly used, and furthermore the text has been modified within the document to make its visual appearance correct.
