Chapter 3. Changing the Appearance of Text > Changing the Look of Paragraphs

Changing the Look of Paragraphs

You can enhance the appearance of a paragraph by changing the way text is aligned, modifying the spacing between paragraphs, and adding borders and shading around text. In Word, a paragraph is any amount of text that ends when you press the key. A paragraph can include a single sentence consisting of one or more words, or several sentences.


You control the width of paragraphs by setting the left and right margins, and you control the length of pages by setting the top and bottom margins. The margin size controls the amount of white space that surrounds your text. You can use the options in the Page Setup dialog box to control the margins of the entire document and of specific sections of the document.
