What spacing are you referring to - Line Spacing? If yes, it cannot be set to "None" otherwise lines of text would be touching each other. The minimum line-spacing setting is 1.0. See this: http://thenewpaperclip.com/2007/05/...

Thanks Phil22.
No it is not line spacing, it is the double paragraph spacing when selecting the return or enter key for a new line in Office 2007, Word .docx
Every forum seems to have many answers to this but when I close Word then re-open word, the paragraph double spacing in 'Normal' style is again set at double spacing, just like all the other posters to all the forums including Microsofts, that complain of this default style. Yes OK, before you start to type in your new document format the page the way you like it, but there must be a way of permanently changing this frustrating setting.
If that many people are finding it a problem you would think Microsoft would make it a prioity to fix.

Answer appears to be to alter the paragraph line spacing of the 'normal' style to single by selecting 'Normal' style box then left clicking on the small [X] box at the right hand side of the paragraph section. Change the settings in the spacing section of the drop down dialogue box that appears:- 1/ make sure the before and after boxes are set to '0 pt' . 2/ in the line spacing box select 'single'. 3/ lastly make sure the third box 'at' is blank. Next select the 'default' tab to close the dialogue box....has worked OK for me since carrying out this change.
