Paragraph Level Settings here apply to the entire paragraph. You cannot apply paragraph level formats to parts of a word or sentence without affecting the whole paragraph. The computer views a paragraph as everything between two paragraph markers (set by the [return] key). Note: [return] drops the curser to a new paragraph. [shift] + [return] drops the curser to a new line keeping paragraph settings intact. Apply paragraph formats to the sentences below as indicated. Line spacing is a paragraph setting. Always use the line spacing feature; never use the [return] key to space your work.
