Indenting Left and Right Paragraph

Indenting Left and Right Paragraph

      

        The space or distance between the page margin and the text in a paragraph is called indent. These are applied to set the margins of selected paragraph.

        In a document, margins determine the overall width of the main text area or in other words, the space between the text and the edge of the page. Indentation determines the distance of a paragraph from either left or right margins. There are six types of indents that can be used in a document. These are:

        *          First line indent is the distance between the first line of the paragraph and the left     margin.


        *          Left indent is the distance between the start of each line of the paragraph and the left margin.


        *          Right indent is the distance between the end of each line of the paragraph and the right margin.


        *          In hanging indent, the first line of the paragraph is not indented and all other lines start at same distance from the left margin. The first line 'of the paragraph usually starts from the left margin.

    To indent a paragraph, follow these steps.

        *            Select the Paragraph you want to indent.


        *            Select the "Paragraph" command from "Format" drop down menu; "Paragraph" dialog box appears.


        *            Specify values in Left and Right fields of indentation and click "Ok" button of dialog box.
