Format the text using the ruler

Follow the directions below to use the ruler to change some of the text.



Center the headline

Select the headline, then click in the tiny icon on the ruler that indicates a centered alignment: Don't ever center a headline by spacing over with the Spacebar—this is not a typewriter!!)

Justify the rest of the text

Select the rest of the text and click the tiny icon on the ruler that indicates a justified alignment: (aligned on both the left and right sides).

Tip

To make any changes to a paragraph from the ruler, you don't actually have to select all the characters. Just click once anywhere in the paragraph you want to change.


Indent one of the paragraphs

Select a paragraph. In the ruler, position the very tip of the pointer on the tiny rectangle part of the marker on the left of the ruler (shown below). Drag that marker to the right to create the indent. Then drag the tiny arrow marker on the right (shown below) to the left.
