    I open a new document in Word (via Office365) and start typing (tapping). I tap the enter field. Works makes a double spacing. I want only one. I can't see how to change it. Format is unexplainable small in wp.

    I guess I'll say it.

    Word on WP is not meant for document creation it's for simple editing and reviewing. You can make documents but I wouldn't stress about formatting until you get to a PC.

    When/if the new touch version comes out it may solve everyone's issue with Office on WP. I think.

    It is completely crazy, bizar that the company which makes most used text editor on this planet isn't able (or willing?) to make an acceptable version of Word for their own operating system, while Symbian (out of all) and Android have (or had, symbian) very detailed text editors running.
    Is there anyone who can make this comprehensible?

    Yes. The answer probably won't go down well especially if you have a phablet but this is generally the answer.

    It was decided that phones are not the best tools for using an Office type program but the ability to simply edit/review would be sufficient. Phones were considered too small to be used effectively. The initially idea behind WP was to be a device to 'Get in, get done, move on with your life', however MS misunderstood the mobile phone world at the time they came up with that idea. People have been using their phones for this type of purpose for years before and want to continue to do so. That's why we get upset people like yourself on here when they first try to use it and the main reason why I don't bother with it because it's pointless to use.

    Use 'Enter' for a new paragraph only. Word wrap will create single-lined text.
