Question by  CoolCal (44)

In Microsoft Word, how do I change my settings to automatically insert two spaces after punctuation?

Is there a way to do this automatically, or do I have to hit the space bar twice after every single sentence?

In Microsoft Word, you can set the 'replace text as you type' feature to automatically replace a period followed by a space with a period followed by two spaces. However, you would need to do this manually in the AutoCorrect settings menu. It's not offered as a standalone feature.

The settings can be changed depending on the version of Word that you are using. If using Office 2007 this may be changed from the Insert menu.

Just replace. +space with. +2 times space after you have written everything. This should be enough to solve your problem!
