What is double line spacing in MS Word?
In text formatting, a double space means sentences contain a full blank line (the equivalent of the full height of a line of text) between the rows of words. By default, most programs have single spacing enabled, which is a slight space between each line of text, similar to how this paragraph looks.
Why is there extra space between paragraphs in Word?
Word adds space between paragraphs—whether you want it to or not. If you display paragraph marks, you’ll not find any extra paragraph marks. This behavior is part of Word’s styling. When you press Enter to create a new paragraph, Word increases the line spacing to mark the change from one paragraph to another.
