Default double indent paragraph

Does anyone know if there is a button or keyboard shortcut to indent both
sides of a paragraph at the same time?

You can apply the Block Text paragraph style to do that.

If you want a button or keyboard shortcut for it, you can assign one
yourself -- see either
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Customizat...oToToolbar.htm or
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Customizat...roToHotkey.htm for
directions. You'll be using the category "Styles" and the style name "Block
Text".

Only if you have assigned a button or keyboard shortcut to an appropriate
style, such as Block Text.

Default double indent paragraph

I want the same shortcut ke. Did you ever get an answer to this question?

WordPerfect lets you do this as follows: F7 (at top of your keyboard)
indents the entire Par. one tab stop from the left margin; Cntrl + F7 creates
a hanging indent one tab stop from the left marging; Cntrl + Shft + F7 double
indents the entire Par. equally from the right and left margins one tab stop
every time you invoke it. I want have key strokes allowing me to do the same
thing in Word 2007.

Assign a keyboard shortcut to the built-in style called Block Text
that indents from both the left and right margins.

The way you do this in Word is by applying a style (to which you can assign
a keyboard shortcut if desired). The built-in Block Text style has a 1" left
and right indent by default; you'll probably want to modify the indents.

Hi Charlene,

Besides using the "Block Text" style to indent paragraphs, you also have 3 other ways as follows:

Method 1: Apply the Same Indentation for Both Sides of a Paragraph
Right click on a paragraph and choose "Paragraph" command. Then set the indentations in the dialog box open.

Method 2: Use “Format Painter” to Quickly Indent Paragraphs
Use the "Block Text" way or method 1 to set indentation for one paragraph. Then use "Format Painter" to quickly format other paragraphs.

Method 3: Copy the Paragraph Mark to Quickly Indent Paragraphs
Still, if you have many paragraphs to indent, you can format one first then copy its paragraph mark and paste it after the target paragraphs.
So the target paragraphs will take the same indentation formatting.

For more detailed information, you can refer to this article:

Hope that helps!
