ParagraphStyle Structure

Text and paragraph settings for basic typesetting.

Because ParagraphStyles are passed by reference, they can be modified in-flight after being assigned. See the advanced text tutorial for examples.

ParagraphStyles can often be amended with a string description as provided by the ToString method.
