Did you know you can set your customised paragraph spacing in Word? It can save you a heap of time if you ever need it.

 

To set it, head up to the upper-right corner of the Word screen, and then press “Change Styles”. Select paragraph spacing, and then down the bottom of the list, choose “custom paragraph space”.

 

It’s a pretty boring setting, but if you’re writing a long document and changing your formatting often, you’ll be thankful for it.

While this works well, in my experience 90% of Word users don't use 'Styles'. If you're not familiar with Styles and how to manage them then this may ultimately end in confusion. A simpler method if you don't use Styles is to simply set-up your paragraph settings for your document from within the Paragraph Dialogue box.
Firstly make sure you select everything in your document (ctrl+A) even is it's a new empty page. Alternatively, you can just select the section/s of your existing document you wish the changes to apply to.
Go to > Home tab > Paragraph category > Dialogue Box (little button bottom right) > Indents and Spacing tab <
If you would like these paragraph settings to apply to all future documents, make sure you select 'Set as Default' at the bottom of the Dialogue box.
