    My Word seems to be confused about what each type of spacing is. Today I had a double spaced paper written and started messing around with those view buttons on the bottom left corner. When I got it back to print layout view my spacing was much larger than before, but still said double spaced.

    I realize that it is now correct and was too small before. I don't know why it changed, but when I open other documents it still has them as the small, incorrect double spacing and I can't figure out how to make them right. I've got the paragraph thing set to 0 and don't add space--that's none of the problem.

    Please help!

    It's possible that you've also set the "before" and "after" to have some spacing too. In Word, go to Format -> Paragraph, and make sure that it says "0" in both of those boxes, and also "double" in the "line spacing" box.
