Learning how to make a hanging
indent will help you format your Works Cited page correctly. Students
who resist learning the hanging indent end up playing around with
the triangles on the rulers, hitting the tab key, or using the
space bar to try to indent the second line of their entries. All
of these methods will only frustrate you after a while. Besides,
a hanging indent is easy. A proper entry in your Works Cited page
should have the second and third lines indented, like this:
Highlight one of the entries
on your Works Cited and then select Paragraph from the
Step Two. In
the Paragraph dialog box, choose the Indents and Spacing tab and
then select Hanging from the Special Menu.
Congratulations! You've just
made a hanging indent.
