Abstract

This is a procedure for resolving the problems associated with multiple paragraph formats for a document in a word processing environment on a data processing system. In general, an operator is able to change the margins of a paragraph and the changes will apply to the text up to the definition of the next formatting line. This technique becomes very tedious if there are multiple paragraph formats in a document. Most documents do have multiple paragraph formats and these formats, may be defined for use by any one of a number of terminals at a particular installation.
