Using Negative Indents
One cool way to make your headings stand out from the body of your text is to offset them to the left of the body text margin; this is called a hanging heading. With hanging headings, a reader can quickly scan the left margin of your document and get a feel for how the work is organized. One easy way to create a hanging heading is to indent the heading line by a negative number, thereby moving the heading text into the margin. Click on the line containing the heading and choose Format, Paragraph. Under Indentation, enter a negative number in the Left box (try -.2 inch) and click OK.
