Hmm. I don't think so. I think that is layout specific.

I've got hanging indents working fine, Dan, doing as you suggested where you set the text field in Layout mode and use the Inspector/Appearance/Paragraph and Tabs settings. Try this:
• First Line: -20
• Left: 20
• Right: 0
• Tab: 20
• <option>-<tab> to tab between bullet and text during data entry

Thanks Gordon. That did the trick!
FWIW: it seems that one must first give a value to the Left indent before giving a negative value to the First Line. When I started with First Line and all other values were 0 and no tabs set, the First Line reset itself from -20 to 0. However, once I put 20 in the Left cell I was able to give First Line a negative value.
Yes, FMP 12. My settings look the same as yours. Maybe play around with the width of the field. Make sure the tab is left align. Make sure the only thing between the bullet and the text is a tab (<option>-<tab>). Maybe try a new field (if you've been changing lots of settings on this one, maybe something else is set thwarting the hanging indent).
You also need to keep in mind that any local formatting you apply to the text itself in Browse mode will override the formatting you apply to the field in Layout mode.
Thanks Gordon. I'll keep playing with it.
Thanks keywords. I was doing some modifications in Browse mode, so I'll start from scratch.
