Move Whole Paragraphs Up or Down


Q. Is there an easy way to move whole paragraphs to different places in a document without going through the whole highlighting process?

A. There is, and it’s a real time-saver. In fact, I don’t think it’s documented in any of the Microsoft help files—or at least I haven’t found it.

All you have to do is place your cursor in the paragraph you want to move, hold down both the Shift and Alt keys and press the up arrow to move it up or the down arrow to move it down.
