Formatting paragraphs is an important aspect of creating good text documents. Well formatted paragraphs can enhance and clarify text when trying to communicate to the reader.


One of the quickest ways to change a paragraph is to use the Styles and Formatting icon on the Object Bar. This is the first icon on the Object Bar and opens the window you see below.


In the example, the plain text has been highlighted and Heading 3 was chosen for the style which automatically changed the font, size and how the document reads the text as now it is a heading.

The window will now read Heading 3 not Default. This is a quick reference to paragraph or text format. By selecting the text or paragraph the exact style or format will be seen in the window next to the Styles and Formatting icon.
