INTRODUCTION

Line spacing refers to the amount of space between lines of text in a paragraph. You can control line spacing in PowerPoint using the Line Spacing dialog box.

TIP

Other Line-Spacing Options

The Line Spacing dialog box also offers controls for setting the amount of spacing before and after paragraphs. Generally, however, if you use too many paragraphs on a slide, it's more difficult for the audience to read the material.
