Line Spacing to Single in Word Document?
I am typing a resume on Word 2007 and would like it to be single spaced. I have gone into the paragraph formatting and selected Single, but there is still a lot of space between the lines, looks like double to me. I cannot get the lines to be closer together, I have tried the formatting styles as well. Help!
If you’re hitting the Enter key at the end of each line (which actually signifies the end of a paragraph to Word), you’re probably seeing the After paragraph spacing, which is 1.5 in Word 2007. Do this to fix it:
1.Click in an affected paragraph.
2.Click the Home tab on the Ribbon.
3.Click the arrow in the lower right corner of the Styles section.
4.The style for your paragraph should have a bold box around it. You may have to scroll down to find it.
5.Hover the cursor over the style. A listbox arrow should appear. Click it.
6.Select Modify from the list box.
7.Click the Format button and select Paragraph.
8.Make sure the value in the After combination box is zero (0).
10.If you want this to carry forward to other documents based on the template this one is based on, click the radio button for New Documents Based On This Template.
11.OK out of everything.
All paragraphs in the document with that style should adjust themselves.
When you close your document, you may see a warning message asking if you want to save the changes to Normal.dotx. This is an anti-virus measure, intended to alert you that something has changed in Normal.dotx. In this case, you made the change, so you want to accept it.
That should do it.
