Use Increase Indent and Decrease Indent to properly align text instead of multiple spaces. Decrease Indent moves your text to the left. If you are using a bulleted or numbered list, changing the indent will also change the bullet or number structure.
1. Select the text or put your cursor on the text you wish to move toward the left margin.
2. Click the Decrease Indent icon.
3. Your text will move left.
If you have selected a numbered list, moving the text toward the left will change the numbering.
