    double spaced labels (2000)

    I've been asked why someone's labels are always double-spaced. I've asked enough questions to think he's typing individual labels via Tools, Envelopes & Labels, the Label tab. He sent me a page of labels and it is indeed double-spaced (as opposed to paragraph spacing,etc.). I suggested he delete Normal.dot, and he'll try that. Can you think of a reason why a label would always double-space?

    Thanks

    Can't think of a reason offhand without seeing the document. Is this happening only with labels? Another alternative is the Avery Wizard . There are versions for Word 97 through Word 2003. Try this and see if the double spacing continues.

    If you click in one of the labels, which style is displayed in the styles box in the Formatting toolbar?

    Style is Normal.

    I have not heard back, so I don't know if he deleted Normal.dot or not, nor have I passed on John's Avery Wizard suggestion, yet. I'd be willing to bet that would work around the problem, but then I'll always wonder what the trouble was.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Evidently cleaning up Normal.dot solved the problem. Thank you for your suggestions. I learned several things in the process, and that's always a bonus.
