    Default Word 2013 - remove space after paragraph

    How do I make "remove space after paragraph' default?

    In Word 2013, when I hit Enter after typing a line, the space between the next line is rather wide, about 2 lines spacing; but if I keep on typing it will go to the next line with normal spacing.

    Possible to configure it as default ?

    At the end of the line, try using Shift + Enter, instead of just Enter, if you don’t want a double space.

    Shift+Enter works.

    Is there a way to make it default?

    1101, I followed your link,
    checked "Don't add space between paragraphs of the same style"

    Clicked "Set as Default" ->

    Checked " All documents based on the Normal template"

    Returned to Word, it works fine, but when I restarted Word, it doesn't save the settings....

    Try this one, similar to 1101's. It can be a bit of a mission to find the setting sometimes.

    Change the Normal template (Normal.dotm )

    On the File tab, click Open.
    Go to C:\Users\user name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates.
    Open the Normal template (Normal.dotm).
    Make any changes that you want to the fonts, margins, spacing, and other settings. ...
    When you have finished, click the File tab, and then click Save

    I would resist using SHIFT+ENTER except in specific circumstances. That creates a "Newline" rather than a "paragraph". That has all sorts of flow-on effects on formatting, styles etc.
