Office 2007 Line spacing tip

Members of the Swarthmore community have shared valuable feedback about ITS’ Microsoft Office 2007 implementation as noted in this blog from our colleague, Cathy.

During a recent overview session, we discussed line spacing options and modifications.

By default, Microsoft Word 2007 applies a line space of 1.5, however, our colleague, Cathy found that we can reduce the space by using the following steps:

  1. Click the Page layout tab
  2. Go to the Paragraph Group
  3. Click the Launcher icon
  4. Adjust line spacing to “0”
  5. Click Save as default
