    Hi,

    At the bottom there are 2 different figures, you can see 2 small parts of subtitles of a movie. Figure A is the original and figure B how I want it to be. As you can see there are 4 paragraphs of 1, 2, 1 and 2 verses.

    1st and 3rd paragraph are with 1 verse and I want to add an extra space for all paragraphs with 1 verse to the next paragraph. Example like figure B, between 1st and 2nd verse there are 2 spaces and the same as between 3rd and 4th verse there are 2 spaces too.

    What I am looking for is, if it is possible that Microsoft Word can add this space automatically with a code or something for the whole movie's subtitles, instead of having to add this space one by one?

    I don't know what you did, but there's an invalid link at the bottom of your post instead of two images...

    There are no images, but I think I understand what you want.

    I think the easiest way to do this might be to put all your verses into a table that has fixed row heights, like the attached document.

    You could create such a table, then copy/paste the text into it, or do the following to convert existing text to a table:

    Select Edit | Replace...
    Enter ^p^p in the Find what box and @ in the Replace with box.
    Click Replace All.
    Enter ^p in the Find what box and ^l in the Replace with box.
    Click Replace All.
    Enter @ in the Find what box and ^p in the Replace with box.
    Click Replace All.
    Close the Replace dialog.

    Select the text.
    Select Table | Convert | Text to table...
    Click OK.

    You should now have a table, with each entry in a cell.
    With the table still selected, select Table | Table properties...
    Activate the Row tab.
    Tick the "Specify height" check box.
    Enter a height in the box (you'll have to experiment to find a suitable value, 1" seems to work OK but it depends on the font size).
    Select Exactly from the "Row height is" dropdown next to it.
    Click OK.
