To change how Word converts a Text with Layout document, you will need to create a MSTXTCNV.INI (if one does not already exist) in WordPad with the following information, and then save it as a TXT file with the name of MSTXTCNV.INI in the Windows folder:
If there is a MSTXTCNV.INI file, open it in WordPad, type or change the information, and then save and close the file.
[TextLytConv] CharMaps=a,a Width=80 PointSize=24
