Combining alignments

In this movie, I'm looking at some examples of when we might want to combine different alignments, and here I have a cooking recipe which combines right-aligned text with left-aligned text. And how do we achieve this? The Holy Grail of the side-by-side paragraph, there are various tips and work-arounds that you can use to get your paragraphs side by side. I think this is probably the easiest way, and that is to take this text and put it in its own separate text frame which I have done here, and then anchor that text frame to a specific point in the main body of the text, the reason for that being so that if the text is edited, then that anchored text frame will change its position relative to its anchored point. So, how do we achieve that? Well, I have on a separate layer the starting version, and the starting version is basically exactly the same text but without the text frames being positioned and without them being anchored.
