Everyone has their favourite line spacing! Some like as much information as possible crammed into a page and go for single line spacing, whilst others like their white space and go for double (or even TRIPLE!) line spacing. Line spacing can make a document easy to read, or can make it an absolute nightmare to edit.
Lets have a look at how easy it is to play around with line spacing in Word 2007.
To change Line Spacing in Word 2007:
- On the home tab of the ribbon, look for the paragraph group. Then click on the Line Spacing button, as shown in the image below.
- Select your desired line spacing. By default in Word 2007 the line spacing is set to 1.15. From this menu you can select to have your line spacing set to 1, 1.15, 1.5, 2, 2.5 or 3. If you want a more granular line spacing (say 1.63, 1.05 or maybe 12pt or 23pt or anything like that), you can click on the Line Spacing Options item in the Line Spacing Menu.
Below is an example of what each of the various line spacing options look like.
So there you have it… how to control line spacing in Word 2007!
