Adjusting the Spacing Between Lines and Paragraphs

As you may recall, the default line spacing in Word is set to single-spacing. Some types of documents, such as manuscripts, grants, and formal reports, require a certain line-spacing setting for submission.

The accepted standard is to leave a blank line between paragraphs, so you just press Enter twice after you type a paragraph, right? That’s not a problem—until you decide to change the line spacing to double. Now you have the space of two lines between each paragraph. Furthermore, these extra lines leave space at the top of a page.
