How to fix Space after a single spaced paragraph?

Postby Micheal T. Leo » Thu May 29, 2014 9:05 am


please someone can help me to fix the spacing issue. My thesis is in double spaced format, however I have some indented paragraphs that are single spaced. In order for the spacing to be correct, I can't seem to figure out how to continue with double spacing after the single spaced paragraph. Here are a few examples:
double spaced paragraph is here...alsdkfjaldfkjasldfkjasldfj

single spaced paragraph is here and looks like this. I've indented it for you so you know what it looks Like. Then the problem is here.
here is where I have issues. the space is not the same as the above. Any ideas on how to adjust the spacing?

Thank you.

This problem can be tackled on the Indents and Spacing's tab of the Format Paragraph or paragraph style dialog box. Quite apart from spacing between lines in a paragraph you can have spacing between paragraphs as well, and your indented text may have some space below the paragraph (controlled in the boxes Above paragraph and Below paragraph). Play with those settings to get a feeling of how they work.
