Note: I posted a question quite a while ago which was similar to the following. However, that was before I had upgraded to Office 2010. I'm hopeful that now there is some way to accomplish what I'm after.
I am currently working on an Excel project which contains a large number of cells with text entries (and Wrap Text on). For many of the text cells, I need to find a way to indent all but the first row of text. Put another way, I essentially need a way to create hanging indents (as they are called in Word) inside cells.
For example, suppose you have pasted text into some number of cells (with Wrap Text on) as shown in Fig. 1.
As expected, indenting changes the appearance to the following (Fig. 2).
However, I am hoping there is a way to set indents to all rows except the first, as shown in Fig. 3.
To create Fig. 3, I manually inserted the indents by using intracellular line feeds (Alt+Enter) and multiple spaces. However, the hanging indent formatting I'm after, would obviously need to automatically adjust lines as any Wrap Text cell does.
I have never seen this done but the fact that Excel does
intracellular formatting of certain types (e.g. color, italics, etc., Fig. 4), makes me hopeful that it can be modified in some way to include indents.
