And well known why. As you change Word as well as PCs, Word will reformat your document as it gets "hints" from the printer as to how it will show on that printer's printed page.

No mystery at all here.

What to do? If you must -> TYPESET <- then you must stop using Word. You need to move to typesetting apps.

It's that simple.

But I explained why. Now it appears you need more about why.

But think about it. Understanding why will not change the results. So you can ask why over and over and we can discuss how Word works or you can start looking at typesetting software.
