Who has time to indent, anyway?

If you’re as busy as I am you like to save time anywhere possible.  Don’t waste any more time hitting tab to manually indent paragraphs in Microsoft Word – try this instead:

For newer versions of Microsoft Word:

  • Find the Paragraph section on the ribbon
  • Click on the small arrow at the bottom right-hand corner of the Paragraph section.  It looks like this:
  • Under Indentation, choose First Line from the Special drop-down list
  • Choose your indentation amount in the By: box

For older versions of Microsoft Word:

  • Click Format –> Paragraph…
  • Choose the Indents and Spacing tab
  • Under Indentation, choose First Line from the Special drop-down list
  • Choose your indentation amount in the By: box

Use your newly found free time wisely!!!
