View Full Version : [ubuntu] Hanging Paragraph in Writer

July 12th, 2009, 07:30 PM
I would like to be able to create a hanging paragraph in Open's Office's Writer. I don't see an option for doing this. (Hanging paragraphs are those paragraphs where the second and subsequent lines of a paragraph are indented. They are used in bibliographies).

Right-click on the paragraph that you want to format. Left-click on "paragraph." Then, type a positive number in the "Before Text" box (i.e. 0.50"); then type a negative number in the "First Line" box (i.e.-0.25"). That will give you a quarter-inch hanging indent. Alter the dimensions to suit your needs.
