When I select the line spacing it never stays when I open a new Word document. How can I ensure that it does?

Word 2007

In order to keep the Line Spacing the way you selected you need to make it the “Default.” (Default = as preset by you or by a manufacturer of software) Follow the steps below:

1.Open a new WORD document.

2. Click on “Line Spacing” in the “Paragraph” box on the “Ribbon.”

 3. Click on “Line Spacing Options” and change the “Before” and “After” Spacing to “0.”  This will give you normal equal space for your document.

4. Click on “Default.”

The next time you open a new Word document the Line Spacing will remain the same as selected.

If you wish to change the Line Spacing entirely, repeat the above steps.

If you want to change the Line Spacing for part of the document do so on the “ribbon” as needed. A new document will still open in the “Default” selection you made.


Word 2010

Follow the steps above. The only difference will be that you will have a choice to change the “Default” for “this document only” or “all future documents.” Make sure that you mark the feature that you want before clicking “OK
