Line spacing problem is driving me crazy !

Postby Keya_LOT » Wed Dec 10, 2014 11:24 am

Hi Everyone,

I have scoured the internet for answers to a simple question, how do I reduce the spacing between lines of text? I used to make address labels using Word and Comic Sans font with no problems. Now using Writer, I cant seem to reduce the spacing between lines in the addresses as I type them. It puts too much space between the lines. Any suggestions would be great! I have tried everything Ive found online and nothing works.

Thanks in advance,
Keya_LOT

Hi,

OO uses the line height as specified by the font. The line spacing on the page depends on whether you have separate paragraphs or multiple lines in the same paragraph.

If each address line is a separate paragraph, then make sure
Format > Paragraph > Indents & Spacing > Spacing > Above/Below are set to zero

Then, you can set the line spacing to "Fixed" and choose a line height.

If each line is part of the same paragraph, you can also set a "fixed" line spacing, or you can set the line spacing to "Proportional" and set it to something less than 100%.


Thanks,
Champ_AN
