How Do I Make My Headings Actually Look Single Spaced …

Comment on Paragraph Headings and Page Exposure by Jane Doe.

How Do I Make My Headings Actually Look Single Spaced In Word? I’m writing a paper for class and the heading is supposed to be single spaced while the rest of the document is double spaced. Even when I highlight the heading and edit the paragraph so that it says it’s single spaced, it still looks double spaced. I tried making it less than single spaced (like .6) but that doesn’t make much of a difference except it cuts off the tops of all the words.

The only way I can make it look single spaced is by pressing the tab key a bunch of times to use up the rest of the space in the line and then the following line will look single spaced. I would like it to look this way without me having to press the tab key a bunch of times to take up space on the line, I should be able to just press the enter key and have it go down to the next line and have it look single spaced.

How do I do this? I use a Mac and have Microsoft Word for Mac but I doubt it’s much different than on a Windows.

Here’s an example of what I want my heading to look like:

Jane Doe
Health 150
Fall 2010
Paper #3

and what it ends up looking like, even though it claims it’s in single spaced mode.

Jane Doe

Health 150

Fall 2010

Paper #3

I also tried editing it so that it was double spaced to see what it looked like and it made the spaced in between each lines even larger. The rest of my paper is double spaced and looks like it should, double spaced, but the space between the lines looks the same as my supposedly single spaced heading, which isn’t actually single spaced.

Hope that isn’t too confusing, I need help, I’m getting graded down for having “too big of headings” on my last papers. Please read all that I wrote, I don’t want to hear that I should highlight the paragraph, right click and edit it to say single spaced because I’ve already done that.

Thanks!
