easy Word question about spacing text

  bumpkin 19:35 08 Nov 2012

I should know this but can`t find the setting. Using Word return takes me down one line as you all know. Somewhere is a setting where you can go up or down half a line at a time. Can anyone help please.

i In 2003, Format, Paragraph, Spacing, line Spacing. Similar in the later versions I think.

Don't see how it's possible to set it for half a line. It's one line, one and half, two, etc.

I know it is possible as I have done it before hence the post, can probably sort it with one and a half then return on the line above which should give me a half space I think. but any other suggestions please.

If you are wanting a block of text to have half a line space in between each line/row, then choose one and half spacing.

In Word 2003 you can have an icon for a choice of line spacing on the top toolbar. Rightclick on a blank part of Toolbar | Customise | and on the Command tab, choose 'Format' in the lefthand column and in the right column scroll down to line spacing icons and drag and drop the icon(s) you want up to the top toolbar.

This makes it easy to select what spacing you want for the whole document before you start, or change at beginning of a paragraph, or if editing and you want just parts of it then select the text and click on the icon.

It may be like it is in my Corel WordPerdect. Go to Format Line/Spacing I can change mine 1.0 mil at a time

Perhaps your thinking of superscript (Ctrl + Shift + +) or subscript (Ctrl + =)?

Thanks for all the replies. Easy once I was pointed in the right direction i.e. making the adjustments in "paragraph". Want to print cheques that is why the odd spacing required. Perhaps I should have used a text box in hindsight but done it now.
