I copied and pasted some text over from a PDF. This PDF block of text, however, screwed up the double spacing between it and my own original typing. By screwed up, I mean it's compacted the space between the text to neither double space nor 1.5 space. It's somewhere in between.

I adjusted the double spacing, tabbing, etc. but nothing seems to work. Sounds complicated, I know, but there's gotta be an easy fix.

Did you try highlighting what you want to change and then going to "Format" and then to "Paragraph" to change the line spacing?

Yep.

I know I could fix it by typing out the PDF text myself...but, of course, that's too time consuming. The spacing will adjust itself if I delete this copy/pasted block of text.
