Comparison on paragraph layout features among word processors
Three different word processors comparison on paragraph adjusting feature. Kingsoft Writer 2012 excels the other two in that it has a convenient paragraph layout tool for adjusting line spacing and indent.
I've tested Microsoft Word 2007, OpenOffice.org Writer 3.3 and Kingsoft Writer 2012 of the paragraph adjusting feature, and Kingsoft Writer impresses me the most.
Let's first see how they worked:
Microsoft Word 2007
1. Select the target paragraphs
2. On the Page Layout tab, in the Paragraph group, click the arrow s after Spacing Before or Spacing After and enter the desired amount of space. Same with Indent.
Or, shortcuts can be used to change line spacing quickly by:
Ctrl+1 1.0 line spacing
Ctrl+2 2.0 line spacing
Ctrl+5 1.5 line spacing.
However, if you want to change line spacing to other numbers, you have to use the above method.
In Tools->Customize->Keyboard, shortcuts can be customized so that you can use certain keys to increase/decrease indent, or set 1.0, 1.5, 2.0 line spacing.
Here comes the most smart way for changing line spacing, indent, and spacing before/after paragraph.
Kingsoft Writer 2012
1. Select the paragraph that you want to change spacing. Or you even don't need to select. While you are writing, there will be a paragraph layout button on the left, in the same line with the mouse cursor
2. Click this button and the whole paragraph will be selected. A new tab of Paragraph layout will appear in the tool bar.
3. Click each side of the square to change spacing before/after this paragraph, and indent spacing.
4. In the Paragraph Layout tab > Line Space group, click "+" or "-" to increase or decrease line spacing.
While, this paragraph adjustment tool can definitely save time and makes word processing more convenient. More about Kingsoft Writer 2012, visit http://www.kingsoftstore.com/
