  • 1. document is double spaced
    We are working on a 45 page document that appears to be double spaced. None of the styles or settings, however, indicate double spacing or extra paragraph spacing. Everything is set for single and 0 spacing before and after the paragraph. We are trying to change the spacing for a specific paragraph to single so that the lines of text will all fit onto a page. We have tried everything we can think of - switching back to normal, pasting as unformatted text, etc. It continues to paste as double spaced. It is as if the entire document has a setting of double spacing which I cannot find anywhere. So far, the only way we can get this to change back to single spacing is to select all (the entire document) and paste special as unformatted text into a new blank document. But that will be a lot of work to reformat and paste all of the graphics in separately. Does anyone know what could be causing this and how it can be changed back to single spacing? Is there a setting for double spacing an entire document (not just paragraph and line)?
  • 2. How do I insert an en space in Word?
    I use Office 2003 and need to insert en dashes after Figure numbers. But I can't find this function in Word Help. Does this function exist in Word 2003?
  • 3. MS WORD NUMBERING
    I'm formatting a document that is 404 pages long that MS broken up in to sections with the last one being 187. The sections are also not numbered in exact sequence but goes section 1 to 2 to 4 to 8 with no sections 3, 5, 6, 7 on and on up to section 187. The numbering from sections 1, 2 and 4 is the way it should be but from 4 to 8 it jumps from page 14 to page 16 when I'm working in the footer but 13 to 16 when I am working in the body. Even though Word says there are 403 pages in the document the last page is numbered 440. I've gone through them section by section and tried to change the numbering system but it refuses to work. I've followed all the instructions on MS page but the number keep skipping. Can anyone please help me? I've spent hours working on this and tried dozens of solutions I found on the net but none of them work. Please help.

  • 5. Lock position of text box but allow editing its content
    Hello, this is my first time using this forum. I've read several posts on locking text boxes, but my question is unique. I want to lock the position of the text box (so I don't accidentally move it later), but I still want to be able to type in it. The box is along the RHS of my page, and I'd prefer not to Protect the document. Is there any way to do this? Perhaps I could scrap the text box and use a separate column? But the text in the new column is separate from the body, so it can't be like an ordinary 2-column page. Any help is greatly appreciated...

I'm not sure what you mean by the "actual design" of the label, but if 
you're referring to the dashed lines that show the edges of the labels, then 
you need to click Table > Show Gridlines.
