Do you have any weird behavior when you open certain templates in Word? It could have something to do with the template itself. Here’s how you can solve this weird behavior and repair your template document.
I encountered the following problem with a template file in Word: When trying to edit styles in Word, some of the styles do not behave as they should. When trying to edit the Styles and changing their properties the following message pops up:
The warning popped up for all of the existing styles and made it impossible to edit the Style based on and Style for following paragraph option list. A sign that you are using a template which is possibly corrupted
Here’s how this problem usually (but not always) can be solved:
The template styles have now been repaired. You can now open the styles pane and start editing your styles as you wish.
