If you applied several modifications to a document and it does not look as we really wanted, we can delete or remove the Format in a Word document quite simply.

In Word, there is a predominant style attached to each paragraph. Therefore, any changes we make to paragraph formatting without changing the associated style may not be maintained. It is at that moment that we notice that the format changes do not work.
