You have ﬁ nished the text formatting Andrew requested. Next, you will complete
some paragraph formatting, starting with paragraph alignment.
Alignment refers to how the text lines up according to the margins on a page. By default,
Word aligns text along the left margin, with the text along the right margin ragged , or
uneven. This is called left alignment . With right alignment , the text is aligned along the
right margin and is ragged along the left margin. With center alignment , text is centered
between the left and right margins and is ragged along both the left and right margins.
With justiﬁ ed alignment , full lines of text are spaced between both the left and the right
margins, and the text is not ragged. Text in newspaper columns is often justiﬁ ed. See
