Matt Cone February 24, 2021 Tutorials Mac Apps
Creating a document in Microsoft Word for Mac? Depending on who you’re creating the document for, you may have to double space your document. Many organizations such as schools and legal entities have very strict guidelines regarding the line spacing of Microsoft Word documents.
Here’s how to change the line spacing of a Microsoft Word document to add double spacing:
Open Microsoft Word on your Mac, and then create a new document.
To double space the entire document, select Select All from the Edit menu. To double space only a single paragraph or group of paragraphs, select only those paragraphs.
From the Format menu, select Paragraph.
From the Line Spacing menu, select Double. (There are also other options available, such as 1.5 lines.)
You’ve successfully double spaced your Microsoft Word for Mac document!
