  • Hi,

    According to your description, this issue might be caused by the compatibility issue between Word 2010 & Word 2007.

    Please see the description in this article about "Text effects":

    Effects on text are permanently removed unless the effects are applied by using a custom style. If they are applied by using the style, the text effects will appear again when the document is reopened in Word 2010.


    I recommend you try to change a test style to test.

    If this issue still exists, please try to upload some screenshot or send us a sample file via Email (ibsofc@microsoft.com Please use the URL as email subject)
