Need WORD help

I am creating a WORD document and am having trouble

When I finish a paragraph it skips one and a half lines apparently to delineate a new paragraph.  It is trying to be helpful.

What I am trying to do is write a list, so I do not want one and a half lines, I simply want a single line skipped

How do I turn this feature off ?

Thanks in advance

I guess I should add that this behavior occurs inside of a text box

If this is a newer version of Word, see if you can make the Word 2003 style to be your default style. The Word 2003 style single spaces and keeps most other features the same. I use the Word 2003 style on my Word 2010 machine for the same reason as you are wanting. ... Thinkpads_User

But the document I am editing was from a newer version, no sure which yet

In any event, what is the path to modify the setting

There is a compatability pack from Microsoft for Word 2003 for opening Word 2007 and later formats. I think you can do the same for Word 2002, but I am not certain.

With respect to formatting in Word 2002, open Word, Format, Styles and the Styles window opens. Right click on Normal and select modify. The modify dialogue window opens.

Now set paragraphing to single space. I have Word 2002 operating in single space quite nicely and that allows bulleted or numbered lists to single space.
