Paragraph & Font Settings


Table of Contents   Previous Page  Next Page    

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

Note: All settings are entered in inches, even if the selected page format is a European measurement. This is a function of the word processing tool that we cannot modify at this time.

Modifying Paragraph Settings

1Choose File > Workspace > Documents
2Open the document you want to work with.
3Place the cursor in the paragraph you want to modify, then choose Actions > Format > Paragraph.

 

4The Paragraph settings window includes two pages of settings:
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 key 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.
