Microsoft Word/Word 2007 envelope spacing


Word 2007 automatically double spaces addresses to recipient.  When I have 4 lines in an address, the last line goes off the envelope.  Is there a way to change the settings to single space?  I have googled this and the suggestions don't seem to work.  Thanks,

As you will have seen, there are a LOT of answers on Google, but they do explain the problem and the solution - at the risk of giving you instructions you've already seen, try - this looks to be one of the clearer step by step guides.  The only step it doesn't show is one that MAY pop up which is a request to save the changes to the normal template - you will need to confirm this if you see it.  Hopefully this will get you the settings you actually need.
