Hey Guys,

I just started using word 2008, in notebook view, to take notes in class but I have been having a problem with the auto formatting feature. Word will automatically change the format of my text whenever I indent to a new "note level".
For example, I will have my font set to a normal style without any font formatting (no bold, italic, etc.). When I skip to a new line of text and indent to the next "note level", Word will automatically change my font to bold and underlined. This is extremely annoying. Does anyone know how to make it stop?
I have tried turning off all auto formatting and auto correct features, and I have even tried setting default font styles. Nothing seems to work. Any help is appreciated; thanks in advance.
QUOTE Thanks
