If you find yourself in possession of a Word document where someone has typed two spaces between every sentence and you need to change those to use just one space, Word makes it easy to do a find and replace that changes all instances with a single command. Here’s how to do it.
The single or double space between sentences argument has been an ongoing one for decades. Traditional, pre-digital typesetting required the use of double-spacing after periods and colons. This was largely due to the limitations of now-antiquated technology and was the standard style taught by most schools until around 20 years ago. With the advent of digital printing, the need for double spaces isn’t really a thing, anymore. But a lot of people still adhere to the practice.
