Using default tabs
Using default tabs
Every new, blank document has default tab stops already set up for you. These tabs are set
at 1/2-inch (0.5-inch) intervals along the whole width of the document between the
margins. To align text to any of these default tab stops, press the Tab key. You can press Tab
multiple times if you need to allow more width between the information that you’re using
the tab stops to align.
To display the rulers so that you can better work with text alignment features like tabs in a document, click the
View Show Ruler check box to check it.
Making a new paragraph
In legacy versions of Word, when you wanted to create a new paragraph in a blank
document, you had to press the Enter key twice. That’s because the default body text style
didn’t provide for any extra spacing after a paragraph mark, which is a hidden symbol
inserted when you press Enter.
Starting with Word 2007, pressing Enter by default not only inserts the paragraph mark to
create a new paragraph, but also inserts extra spacing between paragraphs to separate them
visually and eliminate the need to press Enter twice. As shown in Figure 4.4, when you
press Enter after a paragraph, the insertion point moves down to the beginning of a new
paragraph, and Word includes spacing above the new paragraph.

Every new document you create in Word 2013 — even a blank document — is based on a
template that specifi es basic formatting for the document, such as margin settings and
default text styles. When you create a blank document, Word automatically applies the
default global template, Normal.dotm .
