The problem occurs when I hit return key. Apparently, this is a formatting
problem. Within the paragraph, I have double spacing. But when I finish a
paragraph and hit the return key to start a new one, the program
automatically double spaces it, which is not what I want. I want my
paragraphs to be single spaced from each other within the document. How do I
fix this?
Thanks.

Please email your response to aubiepride@msn.com or at

Select the double-spaced paragraphs, click on Format | Paragraph
| Indents and Spacing, and set Spacing Before and After to zero.

Select all (Ctrl+A)

Format | Paragraph | Indents and Spacing tab

Set the spacing before and after to 0"

Check the box that says "Don't add a space between paragraphs of the same
style"

Cheers!

I I have tried all of these suggestions and none of them are doing the job
permanently. I have Office 2003. I changed to Microsoft Word as my e-mail
editoras a possible source for a remedy. I have tried to make NORMAL Style
my e-mail default, but it keeps reverting back to Paragraph Style with double
line-spacing for each new e-mail. I also have tried this in my WORD and I,
too, find the grey box "Make This my Default" is grayed out. This shouldn't
be this difficult, or convoluted, as this is pretty basic stuff. All I want
is NORMAL to be my e-mail default style. What's wrong?

This is probably a question about your email program and not about
Word, but why can't you simply accept that your email program requires
that "Paragraph" be the default style, and alter the parameters of the
Paragraph style?

I have read and done what has been suggested but I too keep getting double
spacing when writing an email. In Word I go to Format/Paragraph/Indent and
Spacings: in the "spacings" section there are 0's and "single". However, I
find no "Default" at the bottom of that page. Any other suggestions?
Thanks

If you are using Word 2007, do the following to change the defaults back to
those of Word 2003: First, create a new, blank document. Then, on the Home
tab, click Change Styles | Style Set | Word 2003. Finally, click Change
Styles | Set as Default. If/when you are prompted to save the Normal
template, choose to do so.

You are not getting "double spacing." The default Normal style in Word 2007
has 1.15 line spacing and 10 pts Spacing After. If you want to use the Word
2003 defaults, you can select them instead from Home | Styles | Change
Styles | Style Set.

The problem to which you refer has nothing to do with the operating system

steps that Stefan outlined.
