7. Changing Line Spacing

Line spacing options also exist on Home Tab's Paragraph group. Normally we use line spacing of 1 or 1.15. Line spacing is the space between two lines of a paragraph. Sometimes, when we have small amount of text with respect to a large page size, we may increase line spacing to 2, so that page will look like in a good format showing more text on spreading on more page space. 

How to Change Line Spacing

For example, consider the page in following picture with 1.15 line spacing option.
