I have friend who uses Word 2003 extensively for his writing.

He uses styles to ensure a consistent look of each document so that body text always looks the same, as well as headings, etc.

He has noticed that when he wants to highlight a specific paragraph in bold, it automatically emboldens the rest of the document - which is not what he wants !

If he then immediately presses Undo, the formatting returns to what he wanted - the emboldening of a single paragraph.

This only happens when emboldening entire paragraphs, if he wanted to embolden a word (for example) he can do this without having the problem.

As he uses Word extensively and often needs to embolden certain paragraphs, this is very irritating to him - is there a way to prevent this annoying behaviour for him ?

I look forward to your expert replies on this quite simple, but frustrating, query of my friend.
