The Secret To Moving Text in a Document

Dear Computer Lady,

I not computer savvy, so I have a question.

How do I move a line or sentence in a document I create up or down? For instance, If I placed a large space between a line and I want to move the line up, how do I do this, or move it down.

Thanks for your help, Joe

Dear Joe,

To move a line down, just click at the beginning of the line, and press your, “Enter” key until the line is where you want it.

To move a line up, Click at the beginning of the line, and press the backspace key until the line has moved up to the position you desire.
