Moving paragraphs quickly

  1. Put the cursor anywhere in the paragraph.

  2. Press Control+Alt.

  3. Holding the Control+Alt keys down, press the up-arrow or down-arrow key.

The paragraph will move to before the previous paragraph or after the next paragraph in your document. To move more than one paragraph at a time, select at least part of both paragraphs before pressing the Control+Alt+arrow keys.

If you are using Solaris, the key combination is Control+AltGr+arrow keys.


If your paragraphs suddenly jumped from one place to another, the most likely reason is that you have accidentally pressed one of these key combinations.
