Adding an Address to a Letter
If you haven't already done so, open your Library Complaint letter. With the file open, do the following:
When you have finished typing the address, it should look like this:
If you have too much space between the postcode and "Dear Sir or Madam" you can remove it by doing this:
We'll now highlight the address and move it the right. So, using one of the highlighting techniques you have learnt, highlight the address and only the address. When you have finished, it should look like this one:
Once we have highlighted the address we can align it to the right. To do that we use the alignment icons on the Home tab at the top of Microsoft Word. The alignment icons look like this:
The first alignment icon is Align Left; the second one is Centre Align; the third one is Align Right; and the fourth one is Justify.
With your address highlighted, click each of the align icons in turn, just to get a feel for how they work. Finally, click Align Right, the third icon. Your address should now look like this:
It doesn't look too neat and tidy, and we'll see how to straighten the left side of the address later, when we get on to document tabs. The lesson here, though, was all about highlighting. And, most importantly, that only highlighted text is affected by changes you make. All the other text remained exactly the way it was.
