A paragraph created in Word contains an invisible frame, and you can insert a border around this frame. Click the Borders button arrow to display a drop-down list of border choices.
Apply shading to text by clicking the Shading button arrow and then clicking the desired color at the drop-down gallery.
Use options at the Borders and Shading dialog box with the Borders tab selected to add a customized border to a paragraph or selected paragraphs and use options with the Shading tab selected to add shading or a pattern to a paragraph or selected paragraphs.
With the Sort button in the Paragraph group in the Home tab, you can sort text arranged in paragraphs alphabetically by the first character, which includes numbers, symbols, or letters.
By default, tabs are set every 0.5 inch. You can change these defaults using the Ruler or with options at the Tabs dialog box.
Use the Alignment button at the left side of the Ruler to select a left, right, center, decimal, or bar tab. When you set a tab on the Ruler, any default tabs to the left are automatically deleted.
After a tab has been set on the Ruler, you can move or delete the tab.
At the Tabs dialog box, you can set any of the four types of tabs as well as a bar at a specific measurement. You can also set tabs with preceding leaders and clear one tab or all tabs. Preceding leaders can be periods, hyphens, or underlines.
Cut, copy, and paste text using buttons in the Clipboard group or with keyboard shortcuts.
When selected text is pasted, the Paste Options button displays in the lower right corner of the text with options for specifying how you want information pasted in the document.
With the Office Clipboard, you can collect up to 24 items and then paste them in various locations in a document.
