- It is easy to indent a paragraph. You would normally indent a paragraph from
the left by a specified amount, but you can also indent from the right. You may wish to format your text using
hanging indents, as illustrated below.
- Click within a paragraph that is aligned to
the left. Experiment with using the Increase
Indent and the Decrease Indent
icons displayed within the Home tab.
TIP: Each time you click on the Increase Indent icon, the paragraph is
indented further to the right.
- Click within another paragraph that is
aligned to the left. Click on the Paragraph Dialog Box Launcher.
This will display the Paragraph
You can use the dialog box to set exact left or right indents. Experiment with setting both left and right
indents for this paragraph.
- Use the Undo
icon to reverse these left and right indents.
Click on the down arrow next
to the Special section of the dialog
box. Select First Line.
Your paragraph will now look something like this. The first line is indented, while the rest of
the paragraph is not indented.
