body text default

Hi

Using Word 2002

I am learning to use Document Map and noticed that if text is in "Normal"
style, it can fool DM to list it as a heading. If I change the "Normal"
text to "Body Text", DM no longer picks some of it up as a heading.

But, "Normal" style keeps recurring because when I click enter after a
"Heading" style the style the next line defaults to is "Normal". To avoid
the problem with Document Map, is there a way to instruct Word to default to
body text instead of Normal after a heading?

Thanks.

Jeff,
Yes that does happen, mostly when there are empty paragraphs above and
beyond or when there is not much text in de paragraph. But I have the
impression it is not consistent.
You can of course change every heading style to let it be followed by the
body style. Activate your styles and formatting task pane, click on the
arrow next to the heading style, choose change, in the properties section
choose body in the "next paragraph list" and hit OK. Be aware that the body
text style automatically gives you 6pt space after.
