Alignment in MS Word 2007
It is important to understand that alignment will affect the entire paragraph or content in the Word when you implement text alignment or modify the margins or the line spacing in the text for a single word.
It may even change the inserting point for the next Word. If you want your change to be implemented for multiple paragraphs simultaneously, you must ensure that at least one word is selected from all the paragraphs.
In MS Word, you can implement four alignments and these four alignments are:

All the Paragraph formatting options are available in the home tab in MS Word 2007.
The first step is to select the entire text to be modified using the cursor.
Once the text is selected, go to the Home tab in your application, and from the paragraph formatting group, select the text alignment you want to implement.
The best way to modify the text alignment is by using the keyboard. That way, you will not have to worry about deselecting the content.
Select the content that is to be modified.

When changing the alignment of the text, you can also add spaces between the lines of the content. Adjusting the line spacing also changes the text alignment.

Adjusting Paragraph Spacing in MS Word 2007
The user can also add additional spaces at the paragraph's beginning and ending. The best use of paragraph adjusting is when the user wants a blank line of a different length than the content in the paragraph. This makes it easier to differentiate the content.
Once done, the changes will be implemented in your text.
Working with the Indents in MS Word 2007
Indent is the distance between the page margin and the content in your content. The indent can be implemented for a single paragraph, multiple paragraphs, and even the entire document. So instead of adding spaces before starting a line in your paragraph, the better way is to increase the indent to add the space between the margins and lines.
In MS Word 2007, three different indents can be implemented in the document. These are normal indents, first-line indents, and hanging indents.
