Defining indentation with the Ruler
The two icons on the Ruler that define indentation are the First Line Indent
and the Hanging Indent icons. The First Line Indent icon defines the position
of (what else?) the first line of every paragraph. The Hanging Indent icon
defines the position of every line of text except for the first line, as shown in
Figure 6-13.
Figure 6-13:

To define the first line and hanging indent, follow these steps:
1. Make sure that the Ruler appears visible.
2. Select any text.
3. Move the mouse pointer over the Left Indent icon on the Ruler, hold
down the left mouse button, and drag (move) the mouse to the right.
Word displays a dotted vertical line to show you where the new
indentation margin will be.
4. Release the left mouse button when you’re happy with the position of
the left indentation of your text.
5. Move the mouse pointer over the First Line Indent icon on the Ruler,
hold down the left mouse button, and drag (move) the mouse to the
right (or left).
Word displays a dotted vertical line to show you where the new first line
indentation will be.
6. Release the left mouse button when you’re happy with the position of
the first line indent position.
Using Format Painter
Formatting can be simple, such as underlining text, or fairly complicated,
such as underlining text while also changing its font and font size. After you
format one chunk of text a certain way, you may want to format other parts
of your document the exact same way.
