Understanding Auto Line Spacing

There are several methods Word can use for leading, or line spacing as it is called in Word. Typically, the default line spacing (as specified in the Line Spacing box of the Paragraph dialog box) is Auto. This means line spacing will be adjusted, automatically, based on the largest font size or element on each individual line. If your word processing needs are simple in nature, then Auto line spacing is more than adequate. If you have more demanding word processing needs, then you may need to adjust the line spacing method used by Word to reflect the desired effect for your document.
