Editable Tutorial: How Do I Move the Words Closer Together?

Download the file to your computer and open it in Adobe Reader.

 move the words closer together - click more on the text properties box - choose exactly and change the number

Some fonts add more space than others between the lines of text.  If you don't like all the space between, you can remove it manually.

Highlight the words.  Open the Text Properties Box by pressing CTRL and E (or CMD and E on a MAC).  (My files will not work on phones or tablets; only on computers.)

Click the "More..." button at the far right of the Text Properties box.  This will open a new box with advanced settings.  Click on the "Paragraph" tab at the top to choose alignment and spacing options.

Change the "Line Spacing" from "Single" to "Exactly."  This will probably push the words very tightly together, maybe even overlapping.  Then just experiment with what number you need in the "points" box.  It will vary based on which font you use, and what size the words are.  You'll just need to guess and try a few numbers to see what you like best. 

If you want the words back to how they had been, highlight the words and put the "Line Spacing" back to "Single."

If you are having trouble getting the space to change when doing "Exactly," try resetting it back to "Single" and then choosing "Exactly" again (with the words highlighted).  You can also go to Edit > Undo Typing.  Or close out the file, open it up again, and start over.
