How to Bulk Edit Microsoft Word Heading Styles

easyDITA enables you to convert your DOCX files to DITA. For the best conversion results, we recommend using the standard Microsoft Word heading styles.

Before you begin, obtain the DOCX files that you want to convert.
  1. In Microsoft Word, open the DOCX file.
  2. Place your cursor in a custom heading that you want to change to a default heading.
  3. In the Home tab, in the Styles group, right-click the highlighted style and click Select all highlighted_style instances.
    You selected every instance of a given custom heading style in the document.
  4. In the Home tab, in the Styles group, select a default Microsoft Word style.
    For example, select Heading 1.
    You changed every instance of a given custom heading style in the document to a default style.
  5. For every custom heading, repeat 2 through 4.
  6. Save the DOCX file.
