I'm using Microsoft Word 2002 and I have a problem where I'll hit enter to start a new line of typing, but the cursor will skip down 15 lines. So its virtually impossible to start a new paragraph.

Try > format > paragraph > spacing before and after > 0 pt

This may be the source of your problem

Nope, this setting has already been applied, so it must be something else...any other suggestions?

There is another setting near the one I mentioned previously
Try > format > paragraph > line spacing = single

If it still doesn't work ...

Have you clicked the show/hide paragraph marks button on the toolbar ?

If you have this set to "Show" can you see 15 paragraph marks between where you pressed enter and the current cursor position ?

If you're not sure which button I am referring to, then let me know if you need to press the up arrow 15 times to get back to your original text ?

If you press enter twice does the cursor move down 30 lines ?

If none of this helps attach a sample document that is causing a problem.


regards
David
