  • Select the paragraph/paragraphs to which the formatting has to be applied.
  • Select Format  Paragraph to display the Paragraph dialog box, as shown in the given figure:
  • In the General section, set the alignment of the paragraph from the Alignment drop-down list.
  • In the indentation section, set the left, right and special indents from Left, Right and Special drop-down list.  



* MS Word also enables the following alternative methods to align the paragraph:  

  • Click Align Left in the formatting toolbar for left aligning the text.  
  • ClickCenter in the formatting toolbar for center aligning the text.
  • ClickAlign Right in the formatting toolbar for right aligning the text.  
  • Click justify in the formatting toolbar for justifying alignment of the text.
