More Indent, Please

More Indent, Please

I have good news for my MS Word using keyboard enthusiasts!

I don’t know about you, but I’m thoroughly annoyed every time I have to take my hand off the keyboard to change paragraph formatting regarding indenting and hanging indents.

(Hanging indents happen when the paragraph’s first line is on the left margin and all other lines of the paragraph are indented).

Hands off keyboard, hand on mouse, find what you need, hand back to keyboard. Oops, be careful to place them correctly!

Ugh!

What’s the solution?

Well, just a few key combinations can make all the difference, of course!

For mouseless indentation, give these a try:

  • Ctrl + M will indent one-half inch. (Repeat this for larger indents).
  • Ctrl + Shift + M will remove one-half inch of indent. (Repeat to remove multiple indents).
  • Ctrl + T will move the hanging indent one tab space to the right. (Repeating this will increase the size of the indent by one tab stop each time).
  • Ctrl + Shift + T will decrease the hanging indent by one tab stop. (As you can already guess, repeat this to continue moving the indent to the left).

Just let your fingers do the indenting for once!

For mouse-less indentation give these a try:

  • Ctrl + M will indent one-half inch. (Repeat this for larger indents!)
  • Ctrl + Shift + M will remove one-half inch of indent. (Repeat to remove multiple indents.)
  • Ctrl + T will move the hanging indent one tab space to the right. (Repeating this will increase the size of the indent by one tab stop each time.)
