How to change the default left alignment setting in Word 2010 professional (personal use) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I use Word 2010 Professional for my personal use at home, and somehow the default setting for the left alignment in a new Word document has been changed to a hanging indent at .25.  So every time I open a new Word  document, the left margin has an indent setting.  I have to change it to 0.0 every time, which is annoying.

    I've tried to go into the "Options" section, under "Custom Settings" to de-select an auto left margin indentation, but I can't seem to find an option to do that.  Can anyone please tell me how to change this setting in the master Word 2010 template, so that every time I open a new doc, the left side is aligned at the 1" margin with no hanging indent?

    Thank you.
