    I've just written some letters for school on Microsoft word. The problem is when I came to print them, there are gaps in between some of the sentences where there shouldn't be (at the end of some of the pages.)

    For example, it looks kind of like this:

    that I am
    passionate about


    There are several problems like this. The issue is that when I actually look at the document in word, it looks perfectly normal. It's only when it prints that there is an issue. I can't work out how to fix it. Is there a way?

    Sometimes if I have formatting issues which I can't solve easily, I copy and paste the information in to notepad to lose the formatting and then copy and paste it back in to a fresh Word document.

    Click the button that looks like this : ¶

    It will show you every space, tab, and line break in your document.

    Make sure there aren't any line breaks (shown with the ¶ character) which are 'hidden' by being at the end of lines. If there are, delete them.

    Sometimes when you print with Word, it shuffles stuff around a bit and doesn't print exactly as it appears on screen.

    also make sure you format your page as A4, not letter.
