    gaps between first and second sentences

    From a new document, first sentence starts (at almost) 1/5 down page, second sentence continues at about 1/3 way down the page, third sentence about half way...

    When I highlight the (12 font) text, the highlighted area appears about 1 inch above and below the selected text. Changing font size/style doesn't do anything.

    Page layout=normal spacing above-0pt/below-10pt

    I have uninstalled a reinstalled office to try and get normal type spacing and it changed nothing...

    I have attached a picture for your reference.


    Kind thanks for your time,

    Darek

    What is the spacing set at? Select Ctrl + A >> Paragraph

    Check your spacing for something linke Before: 0 pt After: 10 pt and Line spacing: single

    If this does not do it then why not attach the offending word doc
    HTH

    hey,
    thanks for the quick help...

    If you see my first post you can read that my spacing is set to normal and my after/before pt's are good.

    My problem started out of the blue and now effects every new word doc.

    In my first post I have attached a picture of the problem
    In this post I am attaching an actual document.

    Thanks for all your time.
    ...hey I just noticed it is saved as a .docx
    Is that normal?> shouldn't it be just .doc (no x)
