Hi, my name is Luke and this is how to keep a format from shifting when changing texts. If you're using Microsoft Word or a similar text editor and you'd like to change format, text or insert text from other places. You want to keep the format at the original things you typed. So, first let's look in an example. I'm going to type an Arial black and I'm going to center justify it. Now, if I'd like to change text, but I don't want this format to change. What I need to do is make sure that I'm on a new line. You can do this by pressing Enter. As you can see, I'm still in Arial and it's center justified. If I'd like to change text, I simply go to a different justify. Which we're now going to left justify and I'm going to change the text to Calibri. As you can see here, we still get to keep the original Arial text and have it center justified. And we can still type new text in Calibri and have it be left justified. This also works for when you're pasting in text with different formats from other things like the Internet or on websites. If you'd like to change all the texts to the same format, you can highlight everything and then, select the justification you like. Or you can change the fonts to whichever you like. And that's it.
