Word: Multiple Stack Formulas on a Line Create Spacing Problem

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, versions 3.0 , 3.01, 3.02, 4.0


If a stacked superscript and subscript formula of the type shown in the middle of page 103 of the “Reference to Microsoft Word” manual is created more than once on the same line, the spacing between the active line and the line below is increased more than if there were only one on the line. The line below the line with the stacked formulas appears double spaced instead of single spaced.

To close the gap between the lines of text, change the line spacing of the paragraph to an absolute value by typing in a negative number in the Line box.

For example, to limit the line height of a paragraph to 16 points for each line, type “-16 pt” (without quotation marks) in the Line box under Paragraph Spacing.

The change in line spacing occurs by design when using formulas that use more line spacing, such as superscript or subscript text, to prevent the text of the formula from overwriting the text of lines above and below it. However, the spacing inserted by a second formula on the same line increases the line even more.

This problem was corrected in Microsoft Word version 5.0.
