keyboard shortcuts to reset paragraph alignment (Microsoft Word)

Believe it or not, but I'm starting to fall in love with Microsoft Office 2007. One of the nice things is the fact that if a button can be accessed with a shortcut key, the key is mentioned in the tooltip. (You know, the text that pops up when you hover with your mouse cursor over a button.) So I've just found out that there is a shortcut for the Align Left, Center, Align Right and Justify buttons. And you know what? They also work in Word 2003!

Here's how:

  1. Align text to the left: CTRL+L
  2. Align text to the right: CTRL+R
  3. Align text to both the left and right margins (i.e. justify): CTRL+J
  4. And the odd (unintuitive) one out ... center text: CTRL+E

Or was I the only one who didn't know this?!

Until next week.
