I think that autoformatting stuff is in the Options menu under the Tools 
menu. But I could be wrong. I don't use Word much these days, so my 
knowledge of it is getting hazier and hazier.

  Hi Amber.  My best guess is that MS Word is doing that incredibly 
aggravating thing of autoformatting based on the pattern you have 
established.  So if you did some paragraphs which you started with a tab, 
then it will just start automatically tabbing when you press enter twice to 
start a new paragraph.  You can probably turn this off, but I don't know 
how.  However, if you press tab and hear that you're one inch from the edge, 
then just backspace once and remove what is essentially the second tab-the 
first one was automatically put in for you and the second one you put in

  I am working on a paper for grad school.  for some reason, in this 
particular paper, in certain paragraphs, when I hit the tab key to start the 
paragraph, it indents an inch, instead of the .5 inches it normally does.  I 
am using word XP.  I also have it on normal view.

  Any thoughts on how to get all of my paragraphs to indent one uniform .5
