Double space no more

One of the many adjustments I’ve had to make with my new job is something that’s been really hard to do…no more double spacing after a period!! It’s an old-fashioned (literally as in when “we” were all using typewriters) concept and not necessary anymore now that we all have computers. But it’s a very hard behavior to break. I’ve been double-spacing it since my days in keyboarding class in junior high.

So now I’m going through a period of unlearning the double space. It’s been hard, but I’m making progress now. But it does show that even some of the strongest and most engrained behaviors can be changed. I mean, this is a mindless thing I’ve been doing for the majority of my life!

But if you can put some purposeful attention towards it – then you can recognize when you are doing it, and then take the steps right then and there to change it. For me, the “it” was double spacing. For you, the “it” might be something else.

    Congratulations! ^^ I made the single space switch last year—no one had ever told me that double spacing was wrong! Definitely took a while to retrain myself.
