8.0 version

get-paragraph-format

Arguments: window

Returns the paragraph formatting of the selected text. All paragraphs that are at least partly in the selected text are considered to be selected.

window is a text-edit-pane and is typically a rich-edit-pane (a subclass of text-edit-pane). Note that neither a text-edit-window (typically the parent of a text-edit-pane) nor a rich-edit control are valid arguments to this function. Applying window to a rich-edit control results in a suitable argument, however.

Twelve multiple values are returned:

  1. justification: either :left, :center, or :right
  2. numbering-style: either :plain or :bullets
  3. top-left-indentation: a number in points
  4. body-left-indentation: a number in points
  5. right-indentation: a number in points
  6. tabs: a list of tabstops in points
  7. same-alignment: true if all paragraphs have the same alignment
  8. same-numbering-style: true if all paragraphs have the same numbering style
  9. same-top-left-indentation: true if all paragraphs have the same top left indentation
  10. same-body-left-indentation: true if all paragraphs have the same body left indentation
  11. same-right-indentation: true if all paragraphs have the same right indentation
  12. same-tabs: true if all paragraphs have the same list of tabstops
