Line spacing too wide in Word?

by on
in Office Technology,Word Tips

Q. There is too much space between the lines of my recipients’ address in a letter. How can I tighten it up?

A. With the release of Office 2007, the default line spacing in Word documents became 1.15 lines with a 6-point space before a new paragraph. While this was an improvement to readability in most documents, it did cause some awkwardness in text blocks where single spacing was more desirable.

To correct it in an address block, select all address lines and right-click. Choose Paragraph and check the box that says “Don’t add space between paragraphs of the same style.” Then, select all but the last line of the address and change the line spacing from Multiple to Single. Tip: To make this a more permanent solution, save it as a new style called Address.
