Chapter 5. Formatting Text > Indenting Using the Paragraph Dialog Box

Indenting Using the Paragraph Dialog Box

Instead of using the ruler to set indents, you can enter exact indent measurements in the Paragraph dialog box.

To specify indents using the Paragraph dialog box:

1.
Select the paragraph or paragraphs to format.

2.
From the Format menu, choose Paragraph (Figure 5.28).

Figure 5.28. Choose Paragraph from the Format menu.


3.
On the Indents and Spacing tab of the Paragraph dialog box, change the Left and Right Indentation settings by clicking the arrows or by double-clicking the current setting and typing a replacement (Figure 5.29).

If you want a first line or hanging indent, select either First Line or Hanging from the Special drop-down list. You can then set the amount of the indent in the By text box.

5.
Click OK.
