Style issues in Word when working collaboratively with Sharepoint

Updated: Sep 2, 2023

I have recently had conversations with a few clients who have been experiencing issues with Sharepoint and collaborative working, where a document's styles are becoming corrupted. In particular there seem to be issues with multi-level lists. After some investigation and research it seems this could be as a result of some contributors using the online browser version of Word. I have come across a few posts on online forums that suggest this is an issue Microsoft are aware of and that they are investigating.

I would suggest that in the meantime, if you have documents that are being worked on collaboratively, it would be a good idea to request that all your team members use the full desktop installation of Word, rather than the browser version.
