Double-spaced envelopes


J

justme

The inside address in a letter is single spaced and prints out correctly, but
when I try to print an envelope it appears and prints out double-spaced. I
don't find any options to change this to single space. How can this be
corrected?

Make sure the Envelope Address paragraph style is set to single
spacing and zero points spacing before and after.

Thanks, but where is the Envelope Address Paragraph Style and how do I change
it?

Depends on what version of Word you have. Unfortunately, you
either don't know or won't say, and I can't see your screen from
here. But if you press the Help key (F1) in whatever version of
Word you have and search for 'modify style', you'll probably find
some applicable instructions.

Duh...that would help...2007...just got it a couple weeks ago....so I'm still
in a learning mode...can't seem to find anything anymore. Spend more time
clicking on the various tabs and what's in each tab, than I do actually
getting work done.
Thanks again. I very much appreciate your helpful comments.

Okay, that's what I guessed, and almost posted this sooner:

1. On the Home tab, in the Styles group, click on the dialog launcher arrow
in the bottom right corner to open the Styles task pane.

2. Click on Options... and choose "All styles" for the "styles to show,"
then OK to close the dialog.

3. Find the Envelope Address style in the list.

4. Right-click and choose Modify...

5. In the Modify Style dialog, choose Format | Paragraph.

6. In the Paragraph dialog, change the line spacing or (more likely) Spacing
Before/After.

7. In the Modify Style dialog, choose the "New documents based on this
template" radio button and click OK.

8. You can now click Options... again and set the style list back to
"Recommended."
