When you use Word2003 to edit a Chinese document, you often need to empty the first line of the paragraph. Or when editing a newspaper or magazine, you need to set the first line of the paragraph without indenting to begin with the second line. These typographic requirements will use the paragraph indentation feature provided by WORD2003. Paragraph indents include first-line indents, left indents, right indents, and hanging indents in four ways, each indented in the following ways:
1. Left (right) indent: the Left (right) edge of all lines in the entire paragraph is indented to the right (left);
2. First Line indent: The first line of the paragraph indents to the right, and the other lines are not indented to serve as a marker for distinguishing each paragraph;
3. Hanging indent: All lines except the first line are indented to the right, and the first line is not indented.
To set the first line indent as an example, the following procedure is described:
Step 1th, open the Word2003 document window and select the paragraph you want to indent. Click the format → paragraph menu command in the menu bar, as shown in Figure 2010070801.
Figure 2010070801 Click the Paragraph menu command, step 2nd, in the Open Paragraph dialog box, switch to the Indent and Spacing tab. In the Indent area, click the Special Format Drop-down triangle button and select the first line indent option from the Open Drop-down menu. Then click the Fine-tune button in the measure text box to set the number of characters to indent (for example, set to the most commonly used 2 characters), and then click OK when you are finished, as shown in Figure 2010070802.
Figure 2010070802 Indentation and Spacing tab tip: In the Indent area, you can click the left indent, right indent trimming button to set the indent for the selected paragraph in the Word2003 document. The user can also adjust the indentation of the selected paragraph by dragging the slider on the horizontal ruler, as shown in Figure 2010070803.
