Spacing Before/After Paragraphs. If you use formatted space between
paragraphs as opposed to empty paragraphs, you can adjust the spacing before or
after paragraphs. Space between paragraphs rarely needs to be 10 or 12 points,

type other units of measure after the value and they will be converted to points.
Use cm for centimeters, in for inches, and li for lines. For example, .6 li is
converted to 7.2 points. The Spacing Before and Spacing After options can be found
in the Paragraph dialog box on the Indents And Spacing tab in the Spacing area.
To display the Paragraph dialog box, click the dialog launcher in the Paragraph
group on the Home tab.
