To Change Spacing Above and Below Paragraphs
The default spacing above a heading paragraph in Word is 10 points. In the fl yer, you want to remove this
spacing so the headline is closer to the page border. The default spacing below (after) a body text paragraph is
0 points. Below the fi rst paragraph of body copy in the fl yer, you want to increase this space. The following steps
change the spacing above and below paragraphs.
1
Position the insertion point in the
paragraph to be adjusted, in this
case, the headline.

and other settings.

Changing Document Properties and Saving Again
Word helps you organize and identify your fi les by using document properties , which
are the details about a fi le. Document properties, also known as metadata , can include
such information as the project author, title, or subject. Keywords are words or phrases
that further describe the document. For example, a class name or document topic can
describe the fi le’s purpose or content.
