Alignment-The way multiple lines of text line up along the left margin, the right margin, or both margins. (see examples on subsequent slides)
Justification-The alignment of multiple lines of text along the left margin, the right margin, or both margins. The term justification often is used to refer to full justification, or the alignment of text along both margins.
This results in a ragged or rough right margin.
All text is lined up at the left margin creating a smooth left margin.
Spacing is equal from the left and right margin.
The left and right margin are both ragged or rough.
All lines of text end at the same point on the right margin resulting in a smooth right margin.
The left margin is ragged or rough in this alignment.
All lines, that reach the right margin, end at the same position resulting in a smooth right margin.
All lines start at the same position on the left margin resulting in a smooth left margin.
Spacing is adjusted by the computer to make this happen.
Font or Typeface-One complete collection of letters, punctuation marks, numbers, and special characters with a consistent and identifiable typeface, weight, posture, and type size. (examples: Times New Roman or Arial)
Point-In typography, a fundamental unit of measurement. (72 points = approximately 1 inch)
Type Size-The size of a font, measured in points from the top of the tallest letter to the bottom of the lowest letter.
Formatting-In a document, formatting includes margins, the font and alignment used for text, headers, footers, page numbering, and the way that numbers are displayed. (setting up the document)
Editing-The process of updating a word processing/DTP document to correct spelling, layout issues, and other items to make the document visually appealing.

Landscape-A page layout in which text and/or graphics are printed across the long edge of the page.
Word Wrap-A feature that causes the word processor to force all text to fit within the defined margins. When you fill one line with text, the word processor automatically jumps to the next line. You do not have to press enter at the end of each line.
WYSIWYG-Acronym for what-you-see-is-what-you-get, meaning items are printed as they appear on the screen.
Templates-A document that includes the text needed to create standardized documents. (examples: résumé, calendars, letters)

The FBLA Formatting Guide is available from: www.fbla-pbl.org/docs/MLFormatGd.pdf
A formal business letter is a correspondence sent from a business to another business or to an individual. The person writing the letter is speaking on behalf of the business on a business-related topic rather than as an individual.
The signature block appears a quadruple space (QS) below the complimentary close. The writer’s title should be keyed following a comma on the same line as his/her name, or it can be keyed a single space (SS) below his/her name.
Note that formatting guidelines may change depending on business and location. For class, all documents are to be formatted according to the FBLA Formatting Guide.
