Office Hint: Moving paragraphs up, down, in and out

Sometimes I want to resequence a list of items in Word, Powerpoint or OneNote. I use the keyboard shortcut ALT+SHIFT+arrow to move paragraphs up or down. You can also change the indentation level as well by pressing the left or right arrow keys as part of this sequence.

This also works for multiple selected items as well.


btw this has a different effect in Word when you are positioned in a table, whereupon it will move the whole row up or down. Not sure how to move individual paragraphs (with the keyboard) when positioned within a table. Anyone?
