Try this to apply a hanging indent to your list:
For multiple Citations in a References, Works Cited or Bibliography Page
- OMG! I Love you! I have trying to line up my two lined bullets all morning. I have read help tabs, blogs, ate a pack of M&M's, paced back and forth from the back door to the kitchen and back about twenty times, ate two cans of tuna a hand full of lettuce, and was stressing because my wife will be home from work and I am, stuffed from stress eating and am still working on the same damn application form.............. OMG "CTRL-TAB"
- This doesn't work with hyperlinked or underlined items.
- I tested this method with text including a hyperlink, and it worked. Remember that a hyperlink or URL is considered "one word", so it may end up on the next line. In that case, simply put your cursor in front of that line again and hit Ctrl + Tab one more time. I am using Word 2013.
- If you're on a Mac, I found Function-Tab did the trick. Thanks to OP.
- I don't know why there are thumbs down for this, you've answered the question properly. I too was fiddling round with margins and all sorts knowing there was a much easier way but found it hard to find the right answer. And voila! You've given it to me! Thank you!
- Thank you so much. Worked beautifully. Been wasting time messing with this and searching for a solution. You are wonderful.
- This is very awesome! and so simple. Like a previous reader I was stressing and eating sugar. Now at least part of my problems are handled. Thank you! I'm thinking that this post provides no new information to help anyone. My apologies to those who are not interested :-)
- Very helpful answer, thank you!
However, I am frustrated that Word does not provide a way to format the list to do this automatically. This is a very common format for bulleted lists.
