If we need to double space between lines in Microsoft Word, this guide will be extremely useful. We can quickly double the space between the texts in our document with a few clicks or by using a keyboard shortcut. It's too easy!
What is it and what is it for?
We could say that practically all university students have to do, at some point, double space in a Word document. This provides large margins to be able to make notes or suggestions in a document. At the same time, it is a good way to make it easier to read and for certain types of work, it can be more attractive..
If we don't have anything written yet, we can use a pretty cool trick that comes from the 2007 version of Word and can still be used. We open a new document, we write random text (It is to test), we click anywhere in the field and we write =lorem() in this way we create an elegant text. We can do this as many times as we want.
Set the document to double space
We can also configure a Word document to apply double spacing. For this we can use the “Space between lines” icon in the “Home” tab. In this tab we will have to navigate to the “Line Spacing” icon..
We will select "2.0" in the drop-down menu. Now the text will be double spaced. We can do this to quickly double the space at any point in writing.
We can achieve the same from the design tab. Obviously, we start by going to the tab in question..
In this tab, we are going to have to navigate to the “Paragraph Spacing” option.
A new menu is displayed where we will choose "Double".
And that would be it, our document will automatically set itself so that each line is double spaced as we type.
Create a double space with a keyboard shortcut
Another simple method of doubling the space in a document is to use a keyboard shortcut, this method works both in a document while we write, and before we do it.
In order to double the space with a keyboard shortcut, the first thing will be to highlight the desired text, we can also select all the text by pressing “Ctrl + A”
Once we have all the text selected, what we will have to do is use the “Ctrl + 2” shortcut to be able to quickly apply the double space format.
