ARCHIVED: In Microsoft Word, how do I change the amount of line space between paragraphs?

To adjust the spacing between paragraphs in Microsoft Word:

Word 2010

  1. Select the document text for which you want to change the line spacing.

  2. From the Home tab, in the "Paragraph" section, click Line Spacing.

  3. Select the number of line spaces you wish. Alternatively, click Line Spacing Options, and then, under Spacing, select the options you wish.

Word 2007

  1. Select the document text for which you want to change the line spacing.

  2. Select the Page Layout tab.

  3. From the Paragraph gallery, you can set the "Before" and "After" spacing.

    Note: In Word 2007, the "After" spacing is set to 10 pt by default.

Word 2011 and 2008

  1. Select the document text for which you want to change the line spacing.

  2. From the Format menu, select Paragraph... . The Paragraph dialog box will open.

  3. Select the Indents and Spacing tab. In the "Before:" and "After:" fields, set how much line space you want inserted before and after a paragraph. To prevent any line spaces between paragraphs, set the spacing to 0 pt .
