How to do “Indent to here” / “Hanging Indent” in Illustrator

You can use “Indent to here” / “Hanging Indent” in InDesign by Command-Backslash.

Is there a way to do this in Illustrator without having to Tab to Indent or press the spacebar a few times?

This is what I’m looking for:

This was done in Illustrator. Because both the 2nd and 3rd bullet points are longer, it goes to the next line. I want to know if there’s a way in Illustrator that you can make the word “over” line up with “dogs” above it (for the 2nd point), and the word “and” to line up with “dogs” above it (for the 3rd point).

I know I can cheat and use a soft return and press space bar till it lines up, but it’s not the best way. I know in InDesign you press Command + backspace and it will line up the words.


I used a negative value for the “First-line indent” it works like charm enter image description here
