Invoice double spacing for no reason

Hi there,

 

I have an issue that started a few months back.  I cut and paste several paragraphs from a MS Word doc onto an invoice.  It looks single spaced on both the Word doc and on the QB screen.  But as soon as I print it, it is double spaced. It also appears double spaced in preview.  Any ideas?

 

I feel like I've checked all the format setting on both Word and QB Invoice.

Re: Invoice double spacing for no reason

There might be an additional line feed after each line (I think its the control-J character).  What happens if you type the information in by hand into an invoice (try just typing 3 or 4 lines and then print that and see)?

 

If the typed info doesn't double space then the formatting out of Word is likely the issue. You might try pasting it into a different text editor (like TextEditor, included with the OS) and see if then copying out of there works.

Thanks.  Must be a Word issue I can't see. Tried it in pages and that worked.  Thanks for your suggestion.

Thanks for your response.  Seems to be a Word issue. QB is up to date.
