The white spacing before and after the paragraph are called paragraph

lines and paragraphs in a document.

To adjust paragraph spacing, follow these steps.

    * Place the insertion point in a paragraph.
    * Select Paragraph from Format menu. The Paragraph dialog box will
appear as shown below.
    * Click the Indents and Spacing tab in the Paragraph dialog box.
    * To specify amount of space before the selected paragraphs, type a
number in the before box.
    * To specify spacing after the selected paragraphs, type a number in
the after box.
    * Click OK button to apply the settings.

You can specify the amount of space in inches, points, and centimeters.
For example, type 6pt to specify 6 points spacing or type 6cm to specify
6 centimeters spacing. The preview section of dialog box shows the effect
of your selected spacing between the paragraphs.
