If you literally did a half-return the two lines would print running into each other, but Word can of course select how you space the lines. Go to Format - Paragraph - under Spacing, and in the Line Spacing box change to At Least or Exactly, and then play with the point settings. You should be able to find a setting that will do as you require.
thanks again everyone, I think separate text boxes for each line is the answer I tried to use just one text box for the whole thing, thanks Pineman. One last thing, can a text box be place absolutely anywhere on the page or are there limitations?
