Understanding the Different Types of Indents

There are 4 diferent Types

  • Left Indent moves the left margin of a paragraph to the right.
  • A First Line Indent moves only the first line of a paragraph to the right
  • With a Hanging Indent, the first line aligns on the left and the rest of the paragraph “hangs” from the first line.

To create a Hanging Indent, click carefully on the bottom triangle and drag the Hanging Indent Marker to the right. The “hourglass” will split,as in the above picture and example for hanging indent is shown below

  • A Right Indent moves the right margin of a paragraph to the left.
