Hi there, I've just joined up with bleepingcomputer.com.

I'm having an issue with adjusting line spacing for single lines of highlighted text in MS Word 2002. Instead of only changing the line spacing for selected lines, it changes the line spacing for the whole document. I've tried going into Tools - Options - Edit and deselecting "Use smart paragraph selection" with no joy. When you go into Format - Paragraph, the checkbox labeled "Don't add space between paragraphs of the same style" is grayed out.

The document I'm having trouble with was copied and pasted from the online course page of a course I'm studying. It pasted into word in table format, and I used the 'convert table to text' function in order to covert it to text format. My operating system is Windows XP (service pack 3), and browser is Google Chrome. How can I sort this so I can adjust line spacing for highlighted text and lines only? Thanks.
