    I need some help before I lose my shit and throw this computer out a window.

    I am in outlook, the shitty email program from MS. I need to use it because it integrates with our tax software. Once upon a time it worked fine, but ever since I ctrl+c and ctrl+v some text from one email into a new one I was writing its fucked up.

    I want to hit enter and drop one line. Hit enter 2 to drop 2 lines and make a new paragraph.

    Now every email

    I type

    is like this.

    Bullshit.

    apparently for line spacing i need none instead of single, but i don't know how to make that the default, nor do I really know how i fucked it up.
    I could say that it just did it itself and I didn't click anything but no one buys that shit.
    I was using it so I obviously fucked it up.

    Without knowing which version of Office you have, I can't tell you what you need to do to change it...

    Office 2003? 2007? 2010?

    copy paste something that isnt double spaced and see if that fixes it.. or check the formatting of your emails

    the formatting is what i need to change/fix i guess

    Are you using the option for "use word as editor" ? if so, its likely your margins or something with the ruler bar got moved.

    If you have the discs, you can always run a repair install

    thanks for that link
    i did the instructions in one of the comments and now when i start a new email, or reply to an email
    the first time i hit enter it will jump down 2 lines, but then every time i hit enter after that it only goes down one time.
    better than nothing lol

    i think the part about "the paragraph after this one = no spacing" fixed the issue after the first time i hit enter, but i dunno how to fix the very first paragraph spacing lol

    good enough for now
