Formatting your writing helps convey your message. Word allows you to format text two ways:
In this lesson, you will learn how to align text using the alignment buttons on the Formatting toolbar.
Left-align text: Word's default lines up objects to the left with a ragged right edge.
Center text: This centers selected text, numbers, and inline objects.
Right-align text: Selected text, numbers, and inline objects are aligned to the right with a ragged left edge.
Justify text: This aligns selected text, numbers, and inline objects to both the left and right margin indents, and gives text a straight edge margin on both the right and left sides.
Most of the time, you will left-align your text because left-aligned text is easiest to read. However, you may want to center your text when titling your document.
