Select Non-Consecutive Paragraphs and Format Them

When you’re formatting a long and unwieldy Word document (or email), it is useful to know some tricks that make the job  easier. One of these is selecting non-consecutive paragraphs and applying formatting to only those paragraphs.

To select non-consecutive paragraphs:

    1. Select your first paragraph
    2. Press the Ctrl key (hold it down)
    3. Select your next paragraph
    4. Keep the Ctrl key held down
    5. Select your next paragraph

Now apply formatting, being careful not to de-select the selected paragraphs.

Only the paragraphs you selected will be formatted.
