Chapter 3. Creating a Document > Aligning Paragraphs

Aligning Paragraphs

You're probably used to seeing paragraphs aligned in different ways—in magazine and newspaper articles, in advertising brochures, even on the back panel of a cereal box. All of these examples use different layouts (the way text and graphics are arranged on a page) for different purposes. To decide which alignment choice is best for you, first consider your options.

  • Left is the most common alignment option. In fact, Word uses it as its default. Anytime you open a new document, your paragraphs will be aligned to the left until you make a change.

  • Centered paragraphs are horizontally centered between the left and right margins.

  • Right does the same thing as left, but on the opposite side of the page.

  • Justified paragraphs are aligned with the left and right margins, as you would see in a newspaper.
