Hi there, and welcome to JustAnswer, I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.

Can you hold SHIFT and press enter with SHIFT held down.

Does this give the right amount of space for you?

Please let me know

Thank you

I tried that and nothing changed.


 

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Can I look at the document and see the issue Lisa?

- Click the following link: http://www.wikisend.com
- Upload the file to that website
- Once it is uploaded, the resulting page will display a "File ID" number.
- Please, give me that "File ID Number"

And tell me the page number that has this problem please

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I'd be happy to share but it's a huge file (chapter from a doctoral dissertation) and usually doesn't upload easily. I usually have to use DropBox. But I will try.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX handle up to 100mb so should be ok

Let me know how it goes please

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I uploaded it. Did it work?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX page number with the issue Lisa?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

On all pages, starting on page 2. (After the Roman numeral introductory pages.)

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

The fact that it keeps happening at the top of each page suggests to me that it is related to the Header settings. But I could not find the error.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Thanks Lisa

I see the problem, you have Automatic Indent for the first line.

On the areas where the problem is, click there

Then go to n Format -> Paragraph -> Indents and Spacing -> Indentation -> Special -> First Line.

Change First Line to None and this corrects it.

you do this for each area where the problem is.

If you have continued problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

It is already set to "none" in my document. That was the first thing that I checked.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

are you still here?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
It is not, I checked and see this and it is set to first line.

Go to Page 8

Click to the left of The Sharon Civic Orchestra

So to the left of The

Then go to the indentation and you see it is set to First Line





Customer: replied 1 year ago.

This absolutely does not solve the problem. Please look at the margins again.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Its the indent for first line, I see it everywhere, but give me 5 minutes Lisa, I am fixing it for you and will upload it
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Its corrected.

It has the First Line set to indent, and this was per each paragraph so I had to go through an manually set it to none

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
