Formatting an APA Style Paper in Microsoft Word 2007 Before you begin typing, you must set up your paper to accommodate APA style. Prior to any typing, you need to select the Times New Roman font and your font size, which should always be 12. You can do this by clicking on the “ Home ” tab. You can see here that the font is set to Times New Roman and with a size of 12. However, if you see values different from those specified above, you change them by clicking on the drop- down menu and selecting the appropriate font and size. To set the margins, you will need to click the “ Page Layout ” tab and a set of new options will emerge. Examine the “ Spacing ” panel and make sure a value of “0” is to the right of both “ Before ” and “ After options. You likely will have “10” next to “ After ” as that is the default value of Word 2007. If you do not change the value to zero, then your spacing after a hard return will be almost triple spaced rather than double- spaced.
