    2 questions
    1. Office used DOCx by default. Many users have older ver that only reads
    DOC. How can I change the default to DOC?

    2. Line spacong by default is greater than 1 normal space. How can I change
    the default to the second line spacing option from the ribbon?

    Hi there,

    1. When you "Save As", make sure to save in the Office 97-2003 compatibility format. That will change it to .doc

    2. To change document spacing, go to Page Layout and then Paragraph.

    I hope this helps!

    To change the save default - Click File, Options, Save and change the "Save
    files as this format" to Office 97-2003 type. This can be done in every one
    of the Office programs (Excel, Word, PPT) individually.

    To change the default line spacing, open a blank Word document. Click Home
    tab (if not already there) then the drop down arrow on the lower right
    corner of Paragraph. In the new window that opens set the Indents and
    Spacing tab information, Line spacing: to Single and Spacing before and
    after to 0 pt. Click Set as Default and then Click OK. Close the Word and
    restart and the new line spacing should be set.

    Let us know if this solves your issues.
