Indent paragraphs with one click
A popular method for indenting paragraphs is to drag Word's First Line Indent marker to the desired position on the ruler. But this method is also the most difficult for new users, who often end up changing the left margin instead.
However, there's an alternative method that lets you indent with a single click. Follow these steps:
For example, to indent your paragraph one inch, click 1 on the ruler.
You can also use this procedure to set a hanging indent. Just choose the Hanging Indent marker on the left end of the ruler before making your selection.
