Word offers three types of indents: Normal indents, first line indents, and hanging indents. A normal indent inserts a specified amount of space between the page margin and all of the lines in a paragraph. A first line indent inserts space between the first line and the page margin so it looks like a tab was used. A hanging indent uses a normal indent for the first line and then moves subsequent line farther to the right. Paragraph indents can be set using the Paragraph dialog box or the Ruler.
