Zero Inch (0") Hanging Indent for Bullets Not Remembered


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a, 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, 2.0c, 6.0, 6.0a, 6.0c


The 'Hanging Indent By' setting will default to the previous setting each time you choose 'Bullets And Numbering' from the 'Tools' menu in Word for Windows 2.0. The defaults will be remembered every time except when the setting is 0 (zero) inches when used in versions 2.0a, 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, 2.0c, and 6.0 of Word for Windows.

By contrast, Word 2.0 resets the Hanging Indent By setting to .25 inch each time you choose the Bullets and Numbering command.

In all 2.x versions of Word for Windows, you cannot use the "spin" arrows next to the Hanging Indent By box to select 0 inches. The value clears between 0.1 inch and -0.1 inch.

Setting a Hanging Indent By value to 0 inches is not the same as canceling the Hanging Indent By selection. If you cancel the selection, Word does not insert a tab between the bullet or number and the text. By contrast, if you type 0" in the Hanging Indent By box, Word does insert a tab between the bullet or number and the text.
