Microsoft double space

Shouldn't Microsoft word allow to double space the text? I'm new to this but I have been going up and down trying to double space an essay and it hasn't been possible.

Double Spacing Commented

I can add shapes and text boxes, tables and chairs, but no double spacing? This is a nice app, but for practical purposes I need to double space a document .

I'm having the same issue. I wanted to use this to be able to prepare a text for a writing competition, and the requirements for it clearly say that it needs to be double-spaced. The contest ends Monday, so an update right now would be great.
