For a long time, the document map (which I can turn on and off in the

"view" ribbon) showed a great outline of my headings. A while ago,

however, the map included to show captions for tables and figures,

which makes the document useless. I looked all over the options box

but can't find anything referring to the document map.

Thanks for your help!

    • Right-click in the document map. Is All checked? If not, then have you

      perhaps either assigned Heading # text to captions? Or, is the Caption style

      formatted as an outline "level" instead of as body text? (To see, click in a

      caption and press Ctrl+Shift+S, then click Modify... Click Format -

      Paragraph, and in the Indents and Spacing tab, check the Outline level:

      setting.)

      Thanks - I was able to resolve the problem: The caption style itself

      was formatted as "body text", but each caption was modified

      individually and showed in the paragraph dialog box as outline level

      "Level 1" (which messed up my document map). I selected all caption

      instances and re-applied the original caption style. This way, the

      outline level for captions was re-set to "body text".

    • To prevent this from happening again, you may want to turn off the "Define

      styles based on your formatting" option. (To access this option, click the

      Office button, and then click Word Options. Click Proofing. Then Click the

      AutoCorrect button. Click the AutoFormat As You Type tab.)
