Chapter 2. Working with Windows Programs > Setting Paragraph Indents

Setting Paragraph Indents

When you indent a paragraph, you move its edge in from the left or right margin. You can indent the entire left or right edge of a paragraph or just the first line. The markers on the ruler control the indentation of thecurrent paragraph. The left side of the ruler has three markers. The top triangle, called the first-line indent marker, controls where the first line of the paragraph begins. The bottom triangle, called the hanging indent marker, controls where the remaining lines of the paragraph begin. The small square under the bottom triangle, called the left indent marker, allows you to move the first-line Indent marker and the left indent marker simultaneously. When you move the left indent marker, the distance between the hanging indent and the first-line indent remains the same. The triangle on the right side of the ruler, called the right indent marker, controls where the right edge of the paragraph ends.
