Adjusting left and right paragraph margins Microsoft Office 2007

    The Ruler defines the left and right margins for your paragraphs. To change these paragraph margins, follow these steps:

    1. Make sure 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 to adjust the left paragraph margin.

    Word displays a dotted vertical line to show you where the new left paragraph margin will be, as shown in Figure 5-12.

    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 5-13.
