Set paragraph alignment from the keyboard in Microsoft Word

Word paragraph formatting shortcuts

What’s “LERJ,” you might wonder. Well, in Microsoft Word, it’s simple:

⌘-L aligns the paragraph your cursor’s in to the Left.

⌘-E aligns the paragraph your cursor’s in about the cEnter.

⌘-R aligns the paragraph your cursor’s in to the Right.

⌘-J aligns the paragraph your cursor’s in on both sides– that is, it Justifies it.

Put it all together and that spells “LERJ.”

(They couldn’t use ⌘-C for Center because ⌘-C is used, by the System, for Copy.)
