T O F ORMAT P ARAGRAPHS WITH A H ANGING I NDENT
Notice in Figure 2–55 that the i rst line of each source entry begins at the left
margin, and subsequent lines in the same paragraph are indented one-half inch from the
left margin. In essence, the i rst line hangs to the left of the rest of the paragraph; thus,
this type of paragraph formatting is called a hanging indent . The Bibliography style in
Word automatically formats the works cited paragraphs with a hanging indent.
If you wanted to format paragraphs with a hanging indent, you would use one of
the following techniques.
• With the insertion point in the paragraph to format, drag the Hanging Indent
marker (the bottom triangle) on the ruler to the desired mark on the ruler (i.e., .5")
to set the hanging indent at that location from the left margin.
• Right-click the paragraph to format, click Paragraph on shortcut menu, click Indents
and Spacing tab (Paragraph dialog box), click Special box arrow, click Hanging, and
then click the OK button.
• Click the Paragraph Dialog Box Launcher (Home tab or Page Layout tab | Paragraph
group), click Indents and Spacing tab (Paragraph dialog box), click Special box arrow,
click Hanging, and then click the OK button.
• With the insertion point in the paragraph to format, press ctrl+t.
