Does anyone know how to change spacing between sentences from one space to two? I had changed this for a prior job to one space but my new job is requiring two spaces, but I can't remember how/where to change it.

Go to Tools \ Options \ Spelling & Grammar tab

Then click at Settings button

In that clikc Grammar & Style combo box or whatever

Then select the option Space required between sentences to 1 to 2 or don't check.

You can change the spacing between the lines or the spacing before or after each paragraph.

Change line spacing

Select the text you want to change.

On the Formatting toolbar, click Line Spacing , and then do one of the following:
To apply a new setting, click the arrow, and then select the number that you want.
To apply the most recently used setting, click the button.
To set more precise measurements, click the arrow, click More, and then select the options you want under Line Spacing.

it afresh for changes to "take" (??)Margaret
(I believe that after "fix," you must exit MSW, then reenter (nm

spaces after a period, but with the above-mentioned setting, a green line would show up at places where it is differs from the setting 1 space or 2 space and right click to get the suggestion or run spelling and grammar check (F7) to do all of them at one go.
