You can align a paragraph with the left margin, the right margin, or the center of the body.
To align a selected paragraph, use one of these methods:
•       choose Format > Align, then the alignment you want
•       choose the alignment you want from the edit bar
•       choose Format > Format Paragraphs, then choose your alignment option at "Alignment".

Changing paragraph spacing
You can change both the spacing between lines within a paragraph and the amount of space above it.
To change a selected paragraph's spacing:
1       Choose Format > Format Paragraphs.
2       Enter your spacing requirements at "Space above" and "Line space".
As a guideline to how many pixels to specify for space above a paragraph, this paragraph has 6 pixels above it.

Indenting paragraphs
You can change the indentation of a paragraph from the left and right margins. In addition, you can set a separate indentation value for the first line of the paragraph.
To indent or outdent a selected paragraph, use one of these methods:

Triple-click the paragraph, then press Tab to indent or Shift-Tab to outdent.
•       drag both top and bottom triangles at the end of the ruler

•       choose Format > Format Paragraphs, then specify the indentation you want at "Left side", "First line", and "Right side".
To indent or outdent from the left one tab stop at a time, click the arrow buttons.
