    Hi,
    I observe weird behavior of eaDocX which changes names of word styles from original name like “Table Text Normal” to something like “Table_eaDocX_Text_eaDocX_Normal”. Instead of original style, style “xtablebody” is aplied (not prepared by me – assuming it is some internal eaDocX “fallback” style for table text). Analogically, styles for other parts of tables are affected. It messes up look of the document.
    What am I doing incorrectly?
    Thank you in advance.

    This function gets around a restriction in MS Word. In older versions of Word, when using the HTML interface, Word does not allow style names which contain spaces.
    So, as a work-around, eaDocX changes the name of the style in Word to add underscore instead of space (and adds “_eaDocX_” so that it’s easy to find again) then, when the document has generated, changes the name back to the original.
    Here, it looks like something has happened at the end of this process, and the document has not completed the generate, and the final ‘change back’ function has not worked.
    Did you see any errors when generating?

    Thanks for the answer. Understood.
    Unfortunately, I am not able to replicate the error exactly. There could be some problems in generation caused by problems with integrity of sections (possibly caused by Compare function in Word, as I reported separately). But after I corrected style names and updated Document settings with correct style names, problem did not appear again.

    Note:
    Generally, I find document settings and section definitions in document quite fragile and with potential to loose or break them down in case document is being edited in MS Word and generated iteratively.
