Paragraph Formatting
Paragraph Attributes
You can format a paragraph by placing the cursor within the paragraph and selecting Format > Paragraph from the Menu bar. From the Paragraph dialog box, select the Indents and Spacing tab.

There are special types of indentations: • None: No indentation occurs. • First line: Indents the first line. • Hanging: Indents every line except the first. Under the Spacing section, from the Line spacing drop down menu, you can select the space you would like between lines of the paragraph. You can view the changes you have made from the Preview section, click OK when finished.

Non-printing characters
To be able to view the non-printing characters within a paragraph, e.g., spaces and paragraphs, click the Show/Hide button found on the Standard toolbar. Observe the paragraph symbols (¶) as well as the dots (.) between each word. Each dot represents a space. To easily see the dots, create more spaces between two words. To hide all non-printing characters, click the Show/Hide button again.

Drop Caps
