Hanging indents happen in the bibliography in APA and MLA citation styles. Each entry has a hanging indent that looks like this:
To create a hanging indent in Word 2007:
- Put your cursor where you want to indent your paragraph or citation.
- In Menu, or Ribbon, find the paragraph section.
- In the lower right corner of the Paragraph section click on the little icon (it looks like the corner of a box with an arrow) to open the Paragraph dialog box.
- Under the "Indents and Spacing" tab find the Indents section and under "Special" choose "Hanging" and click on "OK".
