Chances are, you have found a need to break your work into pages a couple of times whole writing. Be it an essay, a book, play, journal, or any literary work. Formatting is regarded to be as important as writing itself. Besides, how else would you plan to deliver your project that satisfies most of your readers?

A written message will most likely be understood differently to a spoken one due to the absence of non-verbal cues that rather send convincing or convicting signals to the recipient. Therefore, this stamps the importance of creating clearer and easier to read texts for enhanced digestion.

When you convey messages this way, it becomes easy for readers to follow. Therefore, this is a tool that all word processors ought to have built within their packages.
