You can apply many formats to paragraphs using the buttons on the Formatting toolbar. Figure 51 shows the Formatting toolbar as a floating toolbar, customized to show only the buttons for paragraph formatting.
It is highly recommended that you use paragraph styles rather than manually formatting paragraphs, especially for long or standardized documents. For information on the advantages of styles and how to use them, see Chapter 6, â€œIntroduction to Stylesâ€.
Figure 52 shows examples of the different alignment options.
