Are you irritated with the line spacing in Word 2007? Here is a simple solution:
If you want to have the “2003” look on your 2007 document, select your text, go from the Home Tab to the Paragraph group and open the dialog box launcher.
This dialog box is divided into four sections. Look at the third section named Spacing.
Look for the field called After and you will see the number 10 there by default. This means that Word is adding 10 points of space after each line of text. Reduce this number by pressing and dragging that number 10 and inserting a 0, (or use the downward pointing arrow to the right of that field until the number is 0).
Also, look to the right and you will see Line Spacing. Click on the dropdown and change the spacing from multiple to single. This will solve your problem for this document only.
If you want this to be your default for all of your Word documents, click the Default button at the bottom of this dialog box.
Another way to do the same thing is to go to the Change Styles button from the Styles group (Home tab) and choose Style Set>Word 2003. This will change the settings for your document without having to select the text first.
