    Overriding left margin in Word

    Can anyone tell me how to override the left margin of the start of a sentence so that you can go further to the left (past the left margin setting) to add some language and then go back to the main/initial left margin and continue with your sentence?

    I think you may get better results if you posted this in the Word forum, not Lounge Matters.
    Perhaps one of the Admins will move it for you.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Generally speaking, an entire paragraph has the same left indent, which is set under Format>Paragraph. To insert text into the left margin adjacent to a paragraph, there are a variety of options. One is Insert>TextBox. Another (older) technique is to use a Frame. Finally, it is possible using the ADVANCE field code to arbitrarily move a bit of text in a line up, down, left or right, but it's quite messy and difficult for other people to understand when editing your document.

    Have you tried experimenting with the Format>Paragraph>Indents and Spacing>Indentation settings?
