    Hi, andy246,

    Select all of your bullet points.  Each one is a separate paragraph, so go to Format > Paragraph... from the command bar at the top of the Word window, which will open the Paragraph dialog box.

    In the "Spacing" area of the dialog box, enter the amount of points in the After field that you want to come after each bullet/paragraph; this number should be 1.5 times the height of your font.  So, if the font size of your text is 12 then enter 18.  If your font size is 10, then enter 15.

    To keep the line spacing within each bullet/paragraph at single, select "Single" in the Line Spacing pulldown field, also in the Spacing area of the dialog box.

    Now click OK.
