MS Word 2000 Paragraph alignment.

When I try to change paragraph alignment to Align Left permanently it always goes back to centre align. How can I change it to always be Left alignment, please?

What document or template are you trying to change it in?

The alignment will be set in whichever template you are using. If you are starting with a new, standard, blank page, then possibly you have altered the standard template (called either deliberately, or accidentally - or it has become corrupted (which dies happen).

You can delete the template, which will force Word to create a new one, which will have left alignment set.

If you need further instructions or explanation, please just ask again.

Sorry not very good at this, just opened word and typed my daily diary a month ago and just keep adding to it after saving it each time, each day.
Then yesterday this happened. Don't know how.

Open your diary,

Go to Edit - Select All

All the text should now be highlighted

Now reset your alignment to left-aligned

Next save your document.

Hopefully next time you open it, it should be left-aligned as normal.

Let us know if it isn't.
