The default amount of "increase indentation" whenever I highlight a few lines to indent is too big for me. I would like to halve that amount.
How do you set this? I don't want to set this every time I indent.
You have to change the default template - Normal.dotm
First open a new document and open the Paragraph to set the indentation you like.
Change the left indentation to 2"
Now save the document as Word Template (click the Office button | Save As | Word Template). Browse to:
and name the document
Close Word. In Windows Explorer go to:
Now, the default indent should be 2".
It might be a setting in the style you are using - check that first.
Home Ribbon > Change Styles > Paragraph Spacing > Custom
Fool around in there and see how you go
