Scenario':  I had 4-5 lines of text which I wanted to set off by indenting  on the left and right.'
So I got out the black ruler and set both left margin values to 4.5, and the right one to about a half-inch in. Then I selected the few lines in question.  Then I hit APPLY.  '
What happened?  The whole document of about 10 pages got indented.  '
Wondering if I had indeed failed to select properly,  I  hit  CENTER, then carefully re-selected the lines in question,  hit APPLY, and IT centered the whole text.  What''s more, the ruler disappeared.   I tried to get it back by scrolling and REDISPLAY, but the entire exp. menu had been cleared, leaving the empty menu window.  This raised another question':'
Without the CLOSEMENU button, can I close JUST the menu?  (selecting EXP MENU in the TEdit menu didn''t get a new one)'
And finally, how do I get the text back the way it was before without access to the expanded menu????'
