Setting Indents for Paragraphs
You can use the horizontal ruler and the Text inspector to set indents for paragraphs.
Here are ways to set indents:
To change indentation using the horizontal ruler, drag the indentation controls.
To change the right indent, drag the right indent symbol (downward blue triangle on
the right side of the horizontal ruler) to the position where you want the right edge of
the paragraph to end.
To change the left indent, drag the left indent symbol (downward blue triangle on the
left side of the ruler) to where you want the left edge of the paragraph to begin.
To change the left margin independently from the left indent, hold down the Option
key as you drag.
To change indentation of the first line, drag the first line indent (blue rectangle) to
where you want the first line of each paragraph to start.
If you want the first line to remain flush with the left margin, make sure the rectangle
aligns with the left indent symbol.
To create a hanging indent, drag the rectangle to the left of the left indent symbol.
To set indents using the Text inspector, click Inspector in the toolbar, click the Text
button, and then click Tabs. Select the paragraph or paragraphs you want to change.
To set the first line indent (or overhang), specify values in the First Line and Left fields
under Paragraph Indents.
If you want the first line to be indented relative to the second line of text, the First Line
value should be higher than the value in the Left field.
If you want the first line to overhang the left side of the paragraph margin, the value in
the First Line field should be lower than the value in the Left field.
To set off a paragraph using indentation (as when you want to include a long
quotation in your text), enter a value in the Left field and the Right field under
