Sometimes, I like to get a poem moved off the left wall of the viewing area. I can use *Center*, but that's not always the look I'm going for. There is a way to do it using periods!

It can look like this:

.............Do not go gentle into that good night,
.............Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
.............Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

but this is how it looks to me as I am formatting:

1) Here's how I do it. Start at the last line of the poem and add your periods:

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
.............Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

2) Highlight the periods:

3) Then click on *Font Color* and choose white:

It will look like this:

4) Highlight the periods and tags, then copy:

5) go ^ up to the next line beginning and click paste:

6) It's now just a matter of moving up each line, pasting the code at each line beginning!
