Indent Text

In Word XP indents add structure to documents. Use the indent ruler and tabs to help make documents clearer.


  • Open the Reveal Formatting menu on the task pane.
  • Click the Indentation section under Paragraph.
  • In the Indentation section, select the Hanging Indent option in the Special: drop-down menu.
  • In the By: drop-down menu, click the increment arrow until it reads .8".
  • Click OK.
  • You will now see 0.8-inch hanging indent.
