Word offers a unique and quick way to insert and align text or to insert graphics, tables, and other items in a blank area of a document. Before entering text or another item, place the mouse pointer on a blank line on the page. As you move the mouse pointer from right to left on the blank line, the pointer (or I-beam, in this case) changes shape as you move it, denoting a particular line alignment. This makes it very easy to center or right-align the insertion point before you insert the text or other item.
To use the Click and Type feature, you must be in the Print Layout or Web Layout view. The feature is not available in the Normal view. To switch to the Print Layout or Web Layout view, select View , and then select the appropriate view from the View menu.
Then, to use Click and Type to align your new text, follow these steps:
After you've typed the centered or right-aligned text and you've pressed Enter to create a new line, you can return to left justification by placing the mouse on the left of the line (the align-left icon appears on the mouse pointer) and double-clicking.
