Solved change text all at once to 12 point space between paragraphs

Specs: Macintosh

I have a very large document that needs a space of 12 points between paragraphs, it's like a 100 pages so it'll be a lot of work to do it manually. Maybe there's a way to do it all at once?

Would love to hear your tips!

Sorry, not a Word wiz but try here:

About half way down is the section:
Changing Paragraph Spacing

You use the Paragraph dialog box to set the space between paragraphs. Paragraph spacing is set in points. If a document has 12-point text, then one line space equals 12-points, one-half line space equals 6-points, double-spacing equals 24-points.

When I select a chapter and I insert the 12 points some paragraphs seem farther from apart from one another than others.. How is this possible?

✔ Best Answer
Best guess, is your line spacing, or change in font size.

Do you have the Show Paragraph Mark option turned on?

On the Ribbion, it's the symbol that look like backwards P
You can use the keyboard shortcut of CTRL-SHIFT-8
(It's actually listed as CTRL-* )
It shows paragraph marks as the backward P
Tab marks as an arrow ->
and spaces as a Dot

May help you in solving your formatting problems.
