Begin to edit
When you’re finished writing your paper, launch your word processing program’s 'find and replace' function. Often this is under the 'edit' menu.
Type in periods
Type a period in the spaces for 'find' and for 'replace.'
Increase the size
Highlight the period in the second, or 'replace,' space. Increase its font size. For example, if it’s in a 12-point font, increase it to 14-point. You usually do this by clicking on the 'format' and 'font' options; sometimes you’ll have to click 'more' to see these options.
Make the switch
Click 'replace all.' This will change the font of all your periods.
Watch it grow
Re-measure your paper. Depending on how long your report was to begin with, simply enlarging the periods can add anywhere from one half to two—or more!—pages.
