Lesson 13. Advanced Style Techniques > Automatic Spacing Between Paragraphs

Automatic Spacing Between Paragraphs

The appearance of your documents improves if some blank space is left between the end of one paragraph and the start of the next. You can accomplish this by pressing Enter twice at the end of a paragraph, in effect inserting a blank line between paragraphs. By using styles, you can have greater control over your paragraph spacing and save time, too. Here are the steps:

  1. Click Format, Style to open the Style dialog box. Select the paragraph style in the Styles list.

  2. Click Modify to open the Modify Style dialog box.

  3. Click the Format button, then choose Paragraph from the list that appears. The Paragraph dialog box opens (see Figure 13.3).

  4. If necessary, click the Indents and Spacing tab.

  5. In the Spacing area, enter the desired spacing or click the incrementer arrows in the Before text box (for space above the paragraph) and/or the After text box (for space below the paragraph).

  6. Click OK twice, then click Close. Paragraphs in the selected style will now automatically have the specified amount of blank space above and/or below them.
