Working with Text
Creating a Predesigned Publisher Publication
Bullets button or the Numbering button. The
default bullet or numbering style is applied to your
text. If you want a special style bullet or
numbering, choose Home>Paragraph>Bullets (or
Numbering) arrow, which displays a menu from
which you can select. See Figure 24-22 for a look
at the Bullets menu.
Publisher, you have the same four choices—Align
Text Left, Center, Align Text Right, and Justify—all
available on the Paragraph Group of the Home tab.
You can change a headline, all of the text, or a
selected story paragraph. You cannot change the
alignment for only part of a paragraph.
Alignment Shortcut Keys
All horizontal alignments have shortcut keys.
For Align Text Left, use Ctrl+L; for Center,
use Ctrl+E; for Align Text Right, use Ctrl+R;
and for Justify, use Ctrl+J.
Adjusting Paragraph Spacing
Another text adjustment commonly used is the
spacing before and after paragraphs. Between the
paragraphs, instead of placing a full blank line that
is determined by the font size, many publications
use a fixed amount of space based on point size.
The easiest way to control the setting is through
the Paragraph dialog box and, like horizontal
alignment options, applies to the entire paragraph. Just
follow these easy steps:
Selecting a bullet style.
Just like in Word, you can change the alignment of
your text. Horizontal alignment manages the text
between the left and right margins of a text box.
Vertical alignment manages the text between the
top and bottom margins of a text box.
Select the paragraphs you want to format.
2. From the Home tab, click the Paragraph
Dialog Box Launcher. The Paragraph dialog
box seen in Figure 24-23 appears.
In Chapter 3, you discovered you can change the
horizontal alignment by selecting the text you
want to change and clicking one of the four
alignment buttons from the Home>Paragraph area. In
