OFFICE / WORD 2007
hi out there,
i have an interesting (and annoying) issue concerning formatting "filename" in the footer:
1. i create a template (.dotx) with "pages" and "filename" in the footer - font arial, size 6.5
2. i use this template to make a new wordfile (. docx)
3. in this new wordfile, i go to the footer and click "update field" on the filename
4. the actual filename appears in size 6.5 as it should, but the ".docx" appears in size 9
how do i get control over this one? any hint helps!
thanks for your help
