Set the Office 2008 default font to Times New Roman
Authored by: rooster on Feb 05, '08 11:43:10AM

For some unknown reason that also appears to have been Crack inspired at M$ Department of Willy-Nilly Changes, they decided to set the spacing After a paragraph to 10 by default. This makes it look as though you have pressed Carriage Return TWICE after a paragraph.

To remedy this, do the following:

1) Open Word
2) Go to menu Format > Styles...
3) Highlight "Normal" in the styles selection window, then press "Modify"
4) In the Window that opens, choose "Paragraph" from a tiny pop-up menu in the lower left corner
5) Change the "After" setting to 0
6) Press "OK" twice to close windows, then Press "Apply" in the main "Style" window
7) Quit Word and re-open. Default Paragraph style of After should now be 0.

In point 6, remember to also check the "Add to template" checkbox before clicking Apply in the "Modify Style" dialog.
