There are three types of indented paragraph:

  • Left (right) indent: increase or decrease the left and right indentation of the whole paragraph.
  • First line indent: the first line of the paragraph is indented in order to differentiate from the previous paragraph.
  • Hanging indent: all but the first line of the paragraph is indented

There are several ways to indent a paragraph; you can use the tab key, paragraph dialog box, or the shortcut key. You can also use the ruler to indent paragraphs. For example, from the Paragraph section under the Home tab and you can click Decrease Indentordecrease indentor Increase Indentincrease indent.
