Chapter 3. Formatting Basics > Paragraph Formatting

Paragraph Formatting

Paragraph formatting is applied to entire paragraphs of text. Word offers a variety of paragraph formatting options:

  • Alignment ( Figure 26) is the way lines of text line up between the indents.

    Figure 26. Examples of alignment options.

  • Indentation ( Figure 27) is the spacing between text and margins. Word allows you to set left and right margins, as well as special indentations for first line and hanging indents.

    Figure 27. Examples of indention options. The ruler in this illustration shows the indent markers set for the first sample paragraph.

  • Line spacing ( Figure 28) is the amount of space between lines. Spacing can be set as single, 1.5 lines, double, at least a certain amount, exactly a certain amount, or multiple lines.

    Figure 28. Examples of line spacing options.

  • Paragraph spacing ( Figure 29) is the amount of space before and after the paragraph.
