Indenting Content

Use the 'indent' button to indent your text from the left margin:

 

This text is normal paragraph text.

This text is indented using the 'indent' button.

This text is indented using the 'indent' button twice.

You can also format content to be indented from both margins. First, copy and then paste in the entire paragraph below. Then paste your content inside it. Then delete the sample content. You can see that compared to this block of text that the next paragraph has bigger margins. This is an effect that you cannot achieve with the 'indent' button.
