    Signature Double Spacing (Office XP sp1, Win 2k)

    Well here is some fun that I cannot duplicate on any PC but the offending unit. Our head sales guy attaches his signature to all email out of our corporation. When he sends no problem but in about 75% of the replies and 33% of the forwards his signature goes to double spaced, and you cannot edit it. I had him recreate the signature, and I did an advanced edit, still the same.

    double spaced is probably on html formatted mails. Try it with shift enter instead of enter for the EOL.

    Another alternative is to locate the signature file (something like Documents and Settings[username]Application DataMicrosoftSignatures[signature name].htm). Open it up in Notepad and then replace, in the body of the signature the occurrences of

    with
    . Backup the original first, but this does tend to cure it. HTH

    I tried this on my IBM ThinkPad with Windows XP and Outlook 2002; however, it did not remove the double spacing. I also tried unkamunka's solution: Open file in Word Pad and change occurrences of

    with . [was that a period??]. In any case, alas, it made no difference. Perhaps I should replace the

    (just lower case <p's> I assume) with something else? I am not using Microsoft Word as my e-mail editor.

    Oh, that's a thing about the Lounge, some HTML is interpreted while other HTML is converted to text. You can't post a tag without inserting an extra space into it. A tag, as you may know, is the equivalent of a manual line break in Word, it doesn't start a new paragraph, so the rules about spacing between paragraphs do not apply. Of course, the real tag doesn't have that space in it.

    Just for future reference. I think you can use an upper case in a post without the lounge interpreting it.

    Today I deleted all three of the signatures I created and started over. I used shift + enter at the end of the lines for the first 2 and just enter for the 3rd. All three are now single-spaced--at least on my computer before sending. I'm mystified but happy.
