TROUBLESHOOTING
Text or graphics get clipped
If you set line spacing to Exactly, you might find that tops and bottoms of some letters
don’t appear. Of course, the problem could be that you’re using text that’s too big to it
in the allotted space; increase the line spacing or reduce the point size of the text.
That’s not always the case, however. Because of a change in the way Word 2010 handles
fonts, you might need to set a compatibility option to eliminate the clipping. Click File,
Options, and click the Advanced tab. Scroll all the way to the bottom, and click the
arrow to expand Layout Options. Then select Don’t Center “Exact Line Height” Lines.
If your in-line graphics are being clipped, you have two alternatives: use a line spacing
option other than Exactly, or change the graphic’s text-wrapping style. (For details, see
“Adding Pictures and Graphics” on page 237.)
Note
The default paragraph spacing in Word 2010 is different from previous versions of
Word. In previous versions, the default was Single spacing, with no space after. In Word
2010, the default line spacing is Multiple 1.15 (that is, 15 percent more than Single)
with a blank line after each paragraph. If you prefer the old, tighter spacing, on the
Home tab click Change Styles, Style Set, Word 2003.
Paragraph formatting is associated with the paragraph mark at the end of each paragraph.
(The paragraph mark is normally hidden, but you can display it and other formatting marks
by pressing Ctrl+*.) You can demonstrate this by selecting and copying a paragraph mark
and then pasting it elsewhere; the paragraph that ends with the newly pasted mark uses
the same paragraph styling as the paragraph from which it was copied.
Setting Page Layout Options
Options on the Page Layout tab determine the page size, orientation, and margins for a
document—settings you can also make via the Page Setup dialog box, shown next.
