Paragraph Formatting: Aligning, Indenting, Spacing
Ever wonder what it’d be like if books and other documents featured a single,
nevervarying, long block of text? It’s no picnic, which is why doing things like adjusting
a paragraph’s width, its line break style, and specially formatting its opening line all
make a huge difference in the reader’s experience. Your control center for such
matters is the Home tab’s Paragraph section, shown in Figure 2-15.
