Chapter 19. Word Processing > Formatting Documents

Formatting Documents

Many users of word processors start by typing in text and later go back to make adjustments to the way the document will look when printed on paper. This is a process known as formatting. There are many different ways to format a document, for example, by changing the margins, the line spacing, or the type style and size of the characters.

Margins

All word processors allow you to set the left and right margins. Most often a ruler is used to show where on a piece of paper the text will be positioned when printed. For Windows and Macintosh, margins are set by moving a margin guide on the ruler, and tabs are positioned by moving a tab guide—both with the mouse.
