Default how to change line spacing within text box

I just started using word 2007 & can't seem to figure out how to change the
line spacing within a text box. I was able to do it in previous editions of
word. Any help

Default how to change line spacing within text box

If you want to change the line spacing for the selection, click the Home
ribbon tab; there is a Line Spacing button in the Paragraphs group.

On the other hand, if you are trying to change the defaults, note that Word
applies the Normal paragraph style to each text box when it is created.
Therefore, one way to change the default line spacing of text boxes is to
modify the default line spacing for all text (in a document or template).
Here's how:

Press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S to display the Styles task pane. Click the Manage
Styles button. On the Set Defaults tab, choose the desired settings. To
transfer the settings to the attached template, click "New documents based
on this template." Click OK.
