Line Spacing and Indenting


Line spacing throughout the entire document must be consistent.

  • The space between lines of all running text is consistently 1½ or 2 lines. If you use double spacing (2 line) in the front matter, you must use double spacing throughout the entire document.
  • Line spacing on captions and multi-line entries in Table of Contents, Lists & References are single spaced. Remember to use either 1½ or 2 lines spacing between different entries. See example.
  • Spacing before table caption and after figure caption: Appropriate white space must separate text before and after short tables and figures that are included in text.

Indenting: The first line of each paragraph is indented.
