Opening Word 2007 docs in Word 2013 and formatting is changed?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We just installed 2 new PC's on the network with Office 2013.  Everyone else is running 2007.  When an existing file is opened on either of the 2 PC's running Word 2013 the formatting and layout is changed.  The font is changed even though the same font is available and the layout is changed a little and the document does not fit on 1 page any more.  It shifts about 2 or 3 lines at the bottom to the next page.  When we open the same file in Word 2007 everything is still good.  Word 2013 opens the file in 'compatibility mode' but still the layout is changed.  We have hundreds of documents that we need to be able to open in both Word 2007 and 2013.  Any suggestions on how we can make this work??
