    Paragraphs LeftIndent (Word97SR2)

    Here's a little macro to lend a visual effect to a poem:

    <pre>Sub SlantedView()
    Dim i As Single
    Dim prg As Paragraph
    i = ActiveDocument.Paragraphs(1).LeftIndent
    For Each prg In ActiveDocument.Paragraphs
    prg.LeftIndent = i
    i = i + 5
    Next prg
    End Sub
    </pre>


    Here's a poem on which you can experiment:

    Damned thing!
    The spring!
    I went to clean my mouse,
    Unscrewed the louse;
    One screw and I knew
    I was in trouble.
    Out sprang the spring
    All over the house.
    Bounced off the tweezers,
    Sideways off the monitor,
    Leeward of the keyboard
    Where it rests, sullen.
    And there it stays.
    I can't see where it goes, no ways.
    A small thing, this spring,
    But not quintessential.
    Instrumental not at all
    It seems.
    For lo! My computer works still
    Without the thrill
    Of spring
    This May 2nd
    Grey and cloudy
    Sullen, dowdy
    Like my mouse.
    Spring-less.

    Your mouse has lost its spring?

    What inspirational lyric could you pen if yours was an optical mouse?

    Nah. You're thinking of badinage.

    And you can forget about the nuptials, pal! You're not my type. (hah!)

    No. Kevin's clacking keys was not your type.

    You mean, his type is sadly claking in appeal?

    OK. Enough. Let's get back to work.

    P.S. My buddy got 13% of the votes that the Premier got. Not much of the credit due to me.
