Indenting Text

Indentation is often used to set quotations apart from the rest of the text. It is also used to emphasize text or to place a paragraph in a subordinate position beneath another paragraph. When you create a bulleted or numbered list, Word inserts an Indent command after the bullet or number so that the text you type isn’t aligned under the bullet or number, but rather under the first word of the text. For more information on creating bulleted or numbered lists, see Chapter 10, “Creating Lists and Outlines.”

Caution

The Indent feature uses the tab settings to indent your text. Changing the default tab settings affects the way text is indented. If you plan on indenting text and setting specific tabs in the same document, don’t change the tabs at the top of the document. Change them just before you want to type the tabbed text. Then, after you’ve typed the text, restore the default tab settings.
