Hi,

Im a complete novice in Word and this may seem very basic, however........

From my screenshot you can see my title 3.3 Environ has moved over to the right hand side of the page - whereas i need it on the left hand side

How do i get it back over to the left of the page?

Thanks

Put the cursor into the text and click the Left Alignment icon.

In your screen shot you have part of the Font Group of the Ribbon and then the Paragraph Group. The Left Alignment icon is the bottom left of that Group, actually coloured in your screenshot. I suspect it is coloured because the cursor was on a Left Aligned line when you did the screen shot.

From your uploaded file I have the following screen shot.

I have highlighted the tab spacers on the ruler above the document, with the cursor in the effected text, drag these markers to the correct position. Not exactly sure what order you have to move them, play with them and see what happens. If it doesn't do what you want press Ctrl + Z to undo.

Thanks

Just been playing, I am no Guru in Word either.

With cursor in your first sub-heading, drag the tab setting icons to the right place. Then on the Style group in the ribbon, the current style (Heading 2 in your sample) setting should be highlighted. Right click on that and choose "Update Heading 2 to match selection". All the other sub-headings will then change as well.
