So you want to space out (or shrink) the amount of space between your lines in Word 2013 (or Word 2010, because it is the same!). 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. If you hover your mouse over it, a little pop up will appear that says the button is “Line and Paragraph Spacing”. 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!
