Get to know Word 2007 III: Make documents look great

Click Play to view an animation showing how to change line spacing.

You can adjust how much space is between lines of text. If you'd like more or less space between lines throughout a document, or in a selected area of text, such as in a letter address, it's easy to change the spacing.

To change the line spacing for an entire document, you need to select all the text in the document by pressing CTRL+A. To change line spacing for a single paragraph, you can just place the insertion point inside the text; you don't have to select the text.

Then, on the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, click Line Spacing Button image. A check mark in the list tells you what the current line spacing is. Click the new line spacing you want.

Click Play to see how different line spacing will look in the press release.

Tip     If you end up with too much space between paragraphs, look for extra paragraph marks in between paragraphs. Delete the extra paragraph marks to get rid of the extra space. To show or hide formatting marks, on the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, click the Show/Hide Button image button.
