Strange error in word 2000, on highlighting any print in word to change the font or font size nothing happens, although when printing the correct size is printed.

I have removed and reinstalled office, deleted the normal. file.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Once you have changed the font etc and save the document, on reopening the doc is the correct font there?

In Word try the Detect and Repair option in the Help Menu.

recap,

No, doc prints ok but on reopening still shows the right size and font in word toolbar, but not on the document.

Also have put the cd in and done a repair, and tried reinstall.

I don't know much about Word 2000 as I'm still using Word 97, but it sounds to me as if you are set up to use Draft font for displaying text.

Try the Tools pull down menu, Options, View tab and see if Draft Font under the "Show" section is ticked. If so click the tick to untick it.
