I use MS Word Pro 2003. Yesterday everything was good, and today I have to type my report, but my Word smooth my document which uses time new roman font. I tried to reinstall Word, but it didn't work. Notepad and other programs of MS Office are fine. How can I change font back to un-smooth type? PS. I 've attached comparison picture which compares time new roman font in notepad and MS Word.

Try renaming normal.dot which is responsible for loading how the format of a document appears

1. Quit all instances of Word, including WordMail.
2. On the Windows taskbar, click Start, point to Find, and click Files or Folders.
3. In the Named box, type Normal.dot.
4. In the Look In box, select your local hard disk drive (or an alternate user template location if you are running Word from a network server).
5. Click Find Now to search for the file.
6. For each occurrence of Normal.dot that appears in the Find dialog box, right-click the file. Click Rename on the shortcut menu. Give the file a new name, such as OldNormal.dot or Normal-1.dot.
7. Minimize the find dialog box.
8. Restart your automation client to start Word.


When you have done this open word then press format then font then set up the font, click default, click apply

Too bad, It doesn't work. I tried everything you guided. Word still smooths text automatically. I tried other word processor, OpenOffice Writer, Wordpad, etc, and they work fine.
