Cant get rid of extra space under text in a cell

Copper Contributor

In a word doc, I have a table with 2 rows.

 

I cant get rid of some extra space under the text in the top row.

See screenshot (marked with red).

How do I get rid of that?

I want to have the same space above and below that text.

There are two things that could be causing the extra space:

  1. The paragraph may be formatted with space after it - Check the Paragraph Format dialog
  2. The table row heigh may be set to a minimum value - Check the Row tabe of the Table Properties dialog and remove the check mark from the Specify height box if there is one there.
