Part II: Making it Look Nice > Working with Paragraphs

Chapter 6. Working with Paragraphs

In This Chapter

  • Using the Justification features to align paragraphs between the left and right margins.

  • Setting specific tabs so you can type information in columns.

  • Increasing the spacing between lines and paragraphs to make long passages of text easier to read.

  • Using Word features that keep important text from being split apart by a page break.

  • Using the AutoFormat feature to automatically apply formatting while you type or when you’re finished.

Because this chapter discusses ways to format paragraphs, I want to stop for a minute and clarify the definition of a paragraph. Generally, you might think of a paragraph as several lines of text all together in one chunk. You would be right; that is a paragraph, but so is a single line. In fact, anything that ends with a hard return is considered to be a paragraph. You may recall that a hard return is inserted into the document each time you press the Enter key. The hard return ends the current line and moves the insertion point down to the next line.
