Hi, my name is Luke, and this is "how to make hanging indents for a Google Doc." Hanging indents are a type of paragraph where the first line is un-indented, but the subsequent lines after which are indented. In Google Docs, you can do this by going to the top. You'll see a blue flat bar and then a downward arrow. The blue flat bar represents the first line indent, and the downward arrow represents the rest of the paragraph's indents. Start by dragging the bottom arrow to the right. The top blue bar is gonna go along for the ride. Now, once this is moved over to how far you want the hanging indent to be, move the top blue bar back over to the left of where you want the first line to be. As you can see, my first line moved back over to where it should be. Now, as I type, or start a new line, it will appear to go to the first line, but, just by pressing tab, I will automatically tab to where the second, or hanging, indenture is. And, as you can see, if I keep pressing tab, it will always indent to the same spot. And, that's it.
