To space or double space after each sentence– that is the question? Well, if you are like me, you learned in high school that you should space twice after each sentence. Well that was so the 90s. The standard today is one space after each sentence.
So if you are needing to do a double space to single space make over in Word, use the find and replace feature.
Access the find and replace tool by clicking Control + H as the keyboard shortcut. Also find replace command from the Home tab–> Editing group. Just click the binocular icon for find and replace.
Type two spaces in the find what box. Type one space in the replace with box. Click replace all. Word will then report how many instances it replaced.
Inspect all spaces in the document by clicking on the show/hide button. Every space in the document will display as a tiny dot. This makes it easy to see if you have 1 or 2 spaces(represented with dots) after each sentence.
