I have a small personal project that I need lined writing paper for; though, I don't want to use notebook paper.
So my question to you is: How can I make lined paper using Microsoft Word?

Btw, I'm running Microsoft Word for Mac 2011.

See here. It has templates for lined paper. The one line description is: "If you ever need some lined paper but theres none to be found, try this!".

This template is for Windows operating system.

I wanted to create my own template though, because that isn't exactly what I want. How do I create a template? – James Litewski Jul 31 '11 at 5:34
+1 That is cool. – KCotreau Jul 31 '11 at 5:46
You would have to manually draw the lines, make sure the spacing is good, etc, then save it as a template (*.dotx). – soandos Jul 31 '11 at 5:53
To help with manually creating the lines, toggle on the gridlines in View > Gridlines – Kaze Jul 31 '11 at 6:05
Thanks :) What would I use to make the lines? (Sorry, really new to office) – James Litewski Jul 31 '11 at 6:12

Create a table with a single column and as many rows as you want to fill the page then apply a border format of your choice to the bottom of each table cell.

That would get pretty annoying if you want the lines to flow naturally as you type. – soandos Jul 31 '11 at 6:02
@soandos, the OP states "I don't want to use notebook paper." so I presume he wants to to hand write on the printed paper. – Mike Fitzpatrick Jul 31 '11 at 6:05
Ah, ok, got it. – soandos Jul 31 '11 at 6:06

Whnever I need the odd bit of lined or graph paper, I make it at this site - you end up with a PDF so you can reprint offline anytime:

The options for each type of paper are very customisable and it can generate many different types.
