The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for MS-DOS versions 5.0, 5.5, 6.0


When a paragraph mark at the end of a center or right justified paragraph is formatted as hidden text the last line of the paragraph will not Print or preView as center or right justified, but will instead Print or preView as left justified.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Start Word.
  2. Enter a multiline paragraph.
  3. Format the paragraph mark as hidden text.
  4. Format the paragraph as either center or left justified.
  5. Print or preView the document.


To allow the last line to justify correctly, remove the hidden text format from the paragraph mark.
