    Toggle single/double space for one style only? (Word 2002 SP 2)

    I would like to be able to toggle single space/double space for the body text style with a single click. Is there a way to do this?

    I generally like to do my writing with everything single spaced; it lets me see more of the text at once. But I often want to know how long the entire document will be when it's printed out, at which point it will be double spaced. I don't want to simply select all the text in the document and change it to double spaced because in the final document there are document styles (footnotes, quotations, headings, etc.) which won't be double spaced. At the moment I find that I have to do multiple clicks to accomplish this simple task. There must be a simpler way. Any suggestions?

    Many thanks in advance for any help,
    Abraham Z.

    Put this macro in a module in your Normal.dot:

    <code>Sub ToggleBodyText()</code>
    <code> With ActiveDocument.Styles(wdStyleBodyText).ParagraphFo rmat</code>
    <code> If .LineSpacingRule = wdLineSpaceSingle Then</code>
    <code> .LineSpacingRule = wdLineSpaceDouble</code>
    <code> Else</code>
    <code> .LineSpacingRule = wdLineSpaceSingle</code>
    <code> End If</code>
    <code> End With</code>
    <code>End Sub</code>

    Assign this macro to a convenient keyboard shortcut (Tools | Customize..., Keyboard...), for example Alt+Ctrl+B.
