Change the 'after' default paragraph spacing in Word 2008
Authored by: rooster on Mar 25, '08 06:04:52PM

Hi Guys, glad some have found this hint useful. I just want to clarify something, however. I am an English Language Arts teacher, I have worked 10 years in the newspaper industry using AP Style (production, layout, typesetting), and I am a graduate student that uses MLA in writing literary reviews/research. This is why I need the extra space after a carriage return removed. These jobs do not require extra space after a carriage return, in fact, they all require no space after a paragraph.

I was not commenting on the use of an extra carriage return vs. use of paragraph styles when extra space is needed. I was helping people that want no space after paragraphs. The fact that this argument was even brought up here is a mystery to me.
