Chapter 6. Formats > Formatting fundamentals

Formatting fundamentals

Well, you've managed to get some text onto your page, but it's just sitting there in a big clump, and it's hard to read. By adding space between lines and paragraphs, indents, and other paragraph formats, not only will your type look more elegant and professional, it will also be easier to read.

All the formatting commands described in this chapter affect entire paragraphs rather than individual characters. These commands, which are accessed via the Style menu when text is highlighted, include horizontal alignment, hyphenation and justification, indents, leading, space before and after, keeping lines together, rules, tabs, and paragraph style sheets . In the next chapter, you'll learn the ins and outs of typography (styling characters in different fonts, point sizes, and so on).
