Word can align text in one of four ways, as shown in Figure 5-6:
Left: Text appears flush against the left margin but ragged on the right margin.
Center: Every line appears centered within the left and right margins.
Right: Text appears flush against the right margin but ragged on the left margin.
Justified: Text appears flush against both the left and right margins.
To align text, follow these steps:
1. Click the Home tab.
2. Move the cursor anywhere in the text you want to align.
3. Click one of the alignment icons, such as Center or Justify.
Rather than click an alignment icon, you can use one of the alignment keystroke shortcuts as follows: Align Left (Ctrl+L), Center (Ctrl+E), Align Right (Ctrl+R), or Justify (Ctrl+J).
The four different alignment styles display text in different ways.
