Line spacing

Word 2010 document

Changing line spacing in a document.

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 cursor 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.
