word 7 spacing of lines in documents


Hi Helpers
I have a book on word 2002 my old word of course!
But now have word 2007 and my older book explains how to change the spacing between lines but it won't stay
I have to change this every time I start a new document ?
How do I formate the spacing to stay all the time ?
I have looked for the edit box but can't find one.

Thanks
Robut

Go to Page Layout. Click the little arrow at the bottom right of the box. Set your format and click "Set as Default" at the bottom of the panel.

Actually both are incorrect. It is 'Style Set' that needs to be changed, not Page Layout. Style Set change sticks, which means every time you open Word, it will be the same. Page layout only sticks for the time you have word open, and have to set again when reopening. The slipsticksolutions.com webpage has a lot of info on Microsoft Office.

Sorry, I was thinking of Word 2010. I have recently updated. In this version, once you set the format and select Default, you are asked to specify if you want to apply the formatting to only the current document, or to all documents based on the Normal template.

I have got to pay moire attention to details. Good of you to provide the correct way for his release.
