HIDDEN FEATURE?? Paragraph - not Justified, Distributed!

Just do a search on Google for -- Word 2007 Distributed paragraph alignment
-- or something similar.

If you do a normal Justified paragraph, the last line will normally NOT be
justified.

But if you hit CTRL-SHIFT-J, then the last line WILL be justified.

If I go to my Word 2007 Paragraph options -> Indents and Spacing -> General
-> Alignment, there is NOT an option for Distributed.

But if I have already chosen Distributed via the keyboard shortcut, then the
Alignmnent option shows as blank.

This appears to be a hidden feature of Word 2007! I cannot find anything
about it in any Microsoft help, either within Word on online.

Any ideas why this would be??

But it works fine in my US English version of Word 2007.

Well, the keyboard shortcut works, but not the dialog box.

So the features is in, and works in, US Enlgish Office 2007, (via the
keyboard shortcut), but it is not documented (AFAIK), and it doesn't work via
the dialog boxes.

Very very strange Microsoft-like behavior!!!

I agree that it's strange that the shortcut is assigned even for those of us
who don't have installed Asian language support.

I'm not sure if you were being ironic with that suggestion/request... I'd
just like to point out that MVPs was *awarded* by Microsoft, but we don't
work for Microsoft.

I was not being ironic. Of course I believe that every person who works for
Microsoft, or is tangentially related to them in any way, can just walk into
the richest person on the planet's office and ask him about some obscure
issue with one of the products produced by the company that he doesn't really
run any more.

Good point.

And I don't think "Uncle Bill" does any more, either?
