How to Create a Hanging Indent in Google Docs

Visible Ruler

First, make sure the Google Docs ruler is visible.

  • Click “View” and make sure “Show Ruler” is checked. If it isn’t, click on it, and the ruler will appear beneath the menu bar.

First Line Indent & Left Indent

On the ruler, there is a light blue rectangle () at the left margin, which represents the location of the First Line Indent. Beneath the light blue rectangle is a light blue inverted triangle (), which represents the location of the Left Indent.

  • On the ruler, hover the cursor over each shape, and its function will be displayed.

Create the Hanging Indent

  • First: Select the text you want indented. You can select a single paragraph or multiple paragraphs at a time.
  • Next: On the ruler, drag the Left Indent (light blue inverted triangle ) to the right as far as you want the text to be indented. As you will notice, the First Line Indent marker (light blue rectangle ) will come along for the ride, and all your selected text will move to the right.
  • Finally: Drag the First Line Indent marker (light blue rectangle ) back to the left margin. It will move independently, and your hanging indent will be created.
