i'm having this very annoying problem with Word 2008, and i really don't want to have to go find my 2004 copy and install that to avoid this, and i'd like to be able to fix it, if at all possible. basically here is the issue, it happens on both my Macbook and my iMac, btw; i write a lot of poetry, and when typing it up in 2008 the page double spaces the line breaks rather than keeping it single spaced, yet the page is formatted for single space. if a line were to go to the end of the page, it single spaces itself. i want it formatted, and to stay single spaced through the line breaks. has anyone else run into this problem? i hope i'm making sense, if not i'll post screenshots.
