Default Problem typing single-spaced centered letterhead in Word 2007

Hi,

Earlier I had a problem getting single-spaced typing because of the way Word
2007 is set up. I thought I had the problem licked when one of the MVP's
recommended the following:

What you need to do is click the Change Styles button (to the right of the
Quick Styles in
the Styles group) and select Fonts. The Gallery that opens when you choose
Fonts is called Built-in. Office Classic is one of the selections.

However, when I try to type a centered single-spaced heading, I get a double
space after the first centered line, as in the following:


Jane Doe

111 Main Street
Anytown, MA 00011

I can't eliminate the double-space between Jane Doe and the rest of the
address. I think this has something to do with headings, but I'm not
familiar with that. Please help. Thanks in advance.

Default Problem typing single-spaced centered letterhead in Word 2007

Choosing Office Classic fonts will not do anything for you. Changing to the
Word 2003 style set will, but you can also avoid the problem with Space
After by using line breaks (Shift+Enter) instead of paragraph breaks (Enter)
within your inside address or letterhead. If this is really your letterhead,
you shouldn't have to be typing it at all, as you should have it in the
header of your letterhead template; see

Default Problem typing single-spaced centered letterhead in Word 2007

Thank you Suzanne,

But how do I change to the Word 2003 style set? Is it when I select
New==Installed Templates==Office Word 2003 Look?
Thanks in advance.

Do the following: In the Styles group of the Home tab, click Change Styles |
Style Set | Word 2003. If you want this style set as the default, then click
Change Styles | Set as Default.
