  • I'd create a style with the desired indentation. Use this style for speech elements, and the Normal style for other paragraphs.

    You can add your custom style to the Styles Gallery on the Home tab of the ribbon, for easy access.

  • You can assign a custom keyboard shortcut to a style:

    • Right-click the style in the Styles Gallery.
    • Select Modify... from the context menu.
    • Select Shortcut key... from the Format dropdown.
    • Press the desired shortcut key. If it is already in use, you will see it; you can then decide whether you want to override the current assignment or try a different shortcut key.
    • Click Assign.
    • Click OK.

  • Thanks Hans - have done this. 

    Are there shortcut keys on the keyboard I can use to switch quickly between styles?
