Microsoft Office 7 - unwanted double spacing

  bridge+ 20:15 PM 20 Jan 09

When typing a list of various descriptions and I use ' entry ' to start another line - sometimes an extra empty line is produced giving me an unwanted extra empty line space i.e two spaces and not not one. I can not solve this problem - does another kind soul know of a solution. I would be very grateful for some help.

Not a 'problem' that I have had - in many years of Word 97.

However, this thread might get more hits in the 'Helproom'.

If you use the 'Contact Forum Editor' just above your thread, I'm sure that the FE will move it to the helproom for you.

Hi Chris the ancient and Snoreta,

Ok then, I will heed your advice. I think hard spaces might be the culprit - I know how to insert them but how to remove them !

Hi Bridge+, This sounds like the problem I had when not typing to the edge of the page, it seemed to think I was starting a new sentence hence the double space, before clicking enter to start new line hovver mouse over buttons at top of page & press the one that says LINE SPACING then at bottom of list press REMOVE SPACE AFTER PARAGRAPH then press enter that should give one space instead of two GOOD LUCK.

Easy to resolve, but maybe long-winded to explain.

If you were to do 2 entries firstly, select all, then on the ribbon (Word) click the small arrow at the bottom right of Paragraph. Set line spacing to Single, and also adjust Spacing before and after to 0 pt.
Then click Default at the bottom which changes any default document when opened to the settings u have just made.

Outlook 2007 is another culprit of this.

Marko797 has the answer - edit the default paragraph settings.
