Despite the well-known dangers in assuming, I assumethat you think Word 2007’s default paragraph settings are as stupid as I do. Hence, a brief primer on changing them.
- Open Word
- Click on the Page Layout tab.
- Click on the expansion arrow at the bottom right of the Paragraph group.
- Set the Spacing After to 0 pt. You might also want to set the line spacing to Single. Mine defaulted to Multiple, 1.15, which seems pointless.
- Click the Default button. Word will ask whether you want to change the Normal template, thus setting these Paragraph settings for every new document. Click Yes.
