Word allows you fine-tune the line and paragraph
spacing in your documents. In this example, I'd like to start by changing
the line spacing, which is the space between each line of text. Start by selecting some text, and then in
the Paragraph group, click the Line and Paragraph Spacing command. By default, the line spacing is 1.08, so if
you change it to 1.0, the lines will be a little closer together, and if you choose
2.0 they'll be double-spaced.

But if you want to have more precise control,
click Line Spacing Options. There are two things that you can change:
the line-spacing mode and the amount. When the mode is set to Multiple, you can
type in the number of lines of spacing you want. The default is 1.08, so we might change it
to something like 1.25 to spread the lines out a little bit. If you're more accustomed to measuring in
points, like with font sizes, you can select Exactly. Usually, you'll want the spacing to be a little
bit larger than the font size. Since I have 12-point text, I'd like to set
it to about 14 or 15. Now you may have noticed that there is some
extra space between each paragraph.

That's because Word adds paragraph spacing
by default. If you want, you can remove it or change the
amount of space. Make sure the text is selected, then click
the Line and Paragraph Spacing command, and then at the bottom of the list there are two
options: Add Space Before Paragraph and Remove Space After Paragraph. These options will vary depending on the current
paragraph spacing. Just like with line spacing, if you want to
fine tune the paragraph spacing, go to Line Spacing Options, and then you can type in
whichever values you want for the space Before and After. I think I'll try 10 points after each paragraph. I think this looks pretty good, but if you
don't like the way the line or paragraph spacing looks, you can go back and adjust it, until
your document looks the way that you want..
