Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Paragraph settings provide substantial control over the look of paragraphs, from line spacing to special borders and indents.  

Modifying Paragraph Settings

1.With the Document displayed, right-click the paragraph you want to modify, then choose  Paragraph.
 
       

2.Make your changes and click OK to save.

Formatting and Indents - enables you to control alignment, line spacing, indents, and automatic distance before and after the paragraph. (Using the before and after distance for a paragraph eliminates the need to use a blank line between paragraphs and makes for a much more professional document.)

Frame and Page Breaks - enables you to surround a paragraph with a border one one or more sides, and control pagination effects (you can force a page break before the paragraph, prevent the paragraph from breaking across pages, etc.). The Widow/Orphan control option lets you specify the minimum number of lines that can be left on a page.
