Dennis Faas's picture

We all have our own way of setting up our documents, our own "look", so to speak. Many folks like single-spacing in their documents. I prefer lots of room between my lines of text, simply because it's easier for me to read. In any event, line spacing is a very important factor in document formatting. The default line spacing in MS Word 2007 is 1.15.

Luckily, it is fairly simple to format your line spacing in MS Word 2007.

Follow the steps below for Line Space formatting in Word 2007:

  1. On the Home tab of the ribbon, in the Paragraph group, click on the Line Spacing button.
  2. You have lots of choices, such as 1, 1.15, 1.5, 2, 2.5 or 3.
  3. Select the line spacing you prefer.

For a more granular line spacing in the Line Spacing menu, click on Line Spacing Options.
