Word: How to indent paragraphs with one click
The most popular method for indenting paragraphs is to drag the “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 is an alternative method that lets you indent with a single click of the mouse, and this is how we do it:
1. Select the paragraph or paragraphs you want to indent.
2. Click the button at the left end of the horizontal ruler until it displays the First Line Indent marker.
3. Click the ruler where you want to set the indent.
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.
