So you want to space out (or shrink) the amount of space between your lines in Word 2013 (or Word 2010, global burden of disease because it is the same!).Â Well here is how:
- Make sure you select the text you want to change the line spacing of (if you want to change it for the whole document, press CTRL+A to select everything)
- Make sure you are on the “Home” tab in the ribbon menu
- Look for the “Paragraph” group (its the third one along)
- On the bottom row you will see a button which has an up and a down arrow beside what looks like a paragraph.Â If you hover your mouse over it, a little pop up will appear that says the button is “Line and Paragraph Spacing”.Â Click on that button
- You will have a number of different options to choose from – 1.0 (Single line spacing), 1.15 (the default line spacing), 1.5 (one and a half line spacing), 2.0 (double line spacing), 2.5, and 3.0.
- If those options don’t suit you, click on “Line Spacing Options” to access fine grained control over your line spacing
’till next time!
