How to Change the Leading in Word Documents

1. Open Microsoft Word, go to the "File" menu or the "Start" button, depending on your version of Word. In Word 2007, you will use the "Start" button. Click "Open" and browse to the location where the document you want to edit is stored. Double-click the document to open it in Word.
2. Go to the "Edit" menu and choose the "Paragraph" option. A dialogue box will open. Use the "Indents and Spacing" tab to find the leading adjustments.
3. Go to the "Spacing" options and under "Line Spacing," select "Single," "Double," or "1.5." This sets your line spacing. To add additional space between these standard line-spacing options, go to the "Before" or "After" options to the left of the line spacing and use the arrow keys to raise or lower the leading. Choose whether you want to add leading before or after your lines of text. If you don't want any extra leading, ensure that these settings are at 0.
4. Click "OK" when you're finished, and your leading will be set for that document.
