Alignment determines the appearance and orientation of paragraph borders: left-aligned text, right-aligned text, centered text, or justified text, which aligns evenly along the left and right margins. For example, in a left-aligned paragraph (the most common alignment), the left edge of the paragraph is aligned with the left margin.

Vertical alignment determines the position of text in a section of a document relative to the top and bottom margins and is often used to create a cover page.
