Tip 165 – Quickly Adjust the Spacing Between Lines in Word

You can adjust the spacing between lines in a paragraph in Word to be as large or small as you desire. To do this, click inside the paragraph and on the Home tab of the ribbon click the Line and Paragraph Spacing button. Click the desired spacing from the list or choose Line Spacing Options and then adjust the Line Spacing value to suit. Default line spacing is just a little larger than the current font size but you can adjust it to any desired value.
