Set Up Line Spacing Between Multiple Lines of Text in Word 2013

In this article I am going to explain how to set up line spacing between multiple lines of text in Word 2013.

Word 2013 by default places some space between lines of text and between paragraphs. In other words free space between each text line and each paragraph. Word has the feature through which you customize the default line and paragraph spacing. Word has 1.0 and 8P default spacing for line and paragraphs.

We can change the default spacing in two ways:

  1. By modifying the Standard Style
  2. By using Paragraph groups

Change default Line spacing by Style

Step 1

Choose "Style" from the Style group in the "Home" tab.
