Hey there. Newbie here. I haven't been in Indesign for 6 months. I am creating a bulleted list using a pragraph style. I used to hit (I think) Ctrl \ to get the second line of a bullet to line up with the text on the first line. When I am doing it now, it indents the second line but way too far to the right.
In the paragraph style, make sure you've got bullets enabled, then set the left indent on the paragraph to the amount you want all but the first line to be indented, then set a negaive indent of equal size on the first line (this is called a hanging indent). You can adjust the tab value as well to match the left indent to make the first line text start at the same point after the bullet as the following lines. You don't need the indent to here character.
