What is Paragraph Formatting in MS Word?

There are two distinct kinds of formatting which can be applied in Word:


  • Character Formatting

  • Paragraph Formatting

Character formatting is a generic term which refers to all kinds of formatting where the smallest component it can be applied to is a single character. A good example of character formatting is Bold, or Italic as these can be applied to individual characters within a word if required.

Paragraph formatting is a generic term which refers to any formatting where the smallest component it can be applied to is a paragraph. An example of paragraph formatting is alignment, as you can only align whole paragraphs, not individual characters within the paragraph.
