Applying paragraph attributes
Paragraph attributes are formatting options that apply to a paragraph as a whole. They include alignment, indents, leading, and tab settings. To apply attributes to selected paragraphs, use the Paragraph Attributes dialog box (Style > Formats) or the Measurements palette.
You can copy any applied paragraph formats from one paragraph to other paragraphs in the same box or text chain. To copy applied paragraph formats, select the paragraph or range of paragraphs that you want to change, then press Option+/Alt+Shift while clicking anywhere in the paragraph with the formats you want to copy. Copying paragraph formats in this way will not change any character attributes.
