How can I delete the space between rows? When I highlight the target rows, right click -> row -> height, I can't get rid of the space between the top of the row and the text inside the row.

The red space indicates unwanted space.

I'd appreciate any assistance or advice! Thanks.

Rather than Row -> Height, try selecting the relevant cells and right-click -> Cell -> Top. That should at least make the text go at the top of the cell.

But I can't work out why there should be a gap there in the first place: that looks weird. Is there something in the paragraph style, perhaps? - e.g. a large space before each paragraph?

Wow, thanks a bunch...

Well, I got the space in the cell to disappear, but now there's space between the question and answers a) through d)... space under the cell.

Interesting.

Try this:

Select the line on the bottom of the row (that has too much space).
You will see a cursor with a horizontal Line and two vertical arrows.
Drag the cursor upwards (too much is OK !). the row Height will reset to the minimum.

Thanks, that worked fine, but now I can't get rid of the space between normal text and the outside of the cell...

Thanks for the help!

Thanks so much for the request and help, but I fixed it.

I copied and pasted some segments for a small "example file" (no use uploading the ten page homework assignment) and the spaces magically disappeared. I just saved over the old one and now I'm good to go.

I just wish I could have figured out the issue...

OOo is great, but you do have to learn how to use it. Smile

Thanks for your time.

Everything you want to do can be controlled with Format>Paragraph>Indents & Spacing>Spacing.
