Chapter 6. Working with Documents > Changing Line Spacing

Changing Line Spacing

The lines in all TextEdit documents are single-spaced by default, which is appropriate for letters and most documents. But you can easily change your document line spacing to double or you specify to allow extra space between every line. This is useful when you want to make notes on a printed document. Sometimes, you'll want to add space above and below certain paragraphs, for headlines, or indented quotations to help set off the text. To set specialized line spacing setting, use the Other command on the Spacing pop-up (). You can select options for line height, inter-line spacing, and paragraph spacing. Line height is the distance from the top of a line to the top of the line below it; inter-line spacing is the distance from the bottom of a line to the top of the line below it;, and paragraph spacing is the distance from the bottom of a paragraph to the top of the first line in the paragraph below it.

Change Line Spacing

Select the text you want to change.

Click the Spacing pop-up on the ruler, and then select a spacing option:

  • Click Single or Double to apply single line space or double line spacing.

  • Click Other, specify the exacting options you want, and then click OK.
