We have a faculty member experiencing an unusual Word problem on a Mac and I'm curious if anyone else has seen it or if we have to put it down to user error.
It's a Mac Book Pro running 10.8 and Office 2011 and it involves footnotes losing their formatting.
A simplified example. All 3 footnotes start out the same: each has both small caps and italics.
At some point footnote 2 loses the small caps but keeps the italics. (Or the other way around) and footnote 3 loses the formatting and it all goes back to plain text.
Everything about the document looks perfectly normal, but it seems to be happening on many of the 200+ footnotes. If we assume that the faculty member is right about them being correct to start with, I was wondering if anyone has seen this behavior.
