    hi Gary, I remember in MS Word, using a Hanging Paragraph where the first line goes to full margins, and the rest of the paragraph is indented by a set amount. Is the equivalent in Pages to just set the margin for the first line? thx

    nick: Look under indents. There is “first” before “left” and “right.”

    Hi Gary, excellent as always. Thank you! I have a pdf of a covid card that isn’t the proper size for a wallet. Is it possible using pages to change the size of an off size rectangular shape to a size that would fit in a wallet? My issue is trying to change the length of the ‘card’ independent of the width. I tried opening the pdf in preview but that didn’t help me (likely user error I’m sure). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. :)

    Kathy: With the image selected, go to the Format sidebar, then Arrange, then look for Constrain proportions and switch that off.

    Wow that did the trick! Thanks so much!! You are a delight Gary. Oh yes, I wanted to tell you how much I’m enjoying your Podcast with Leo Notenboom called TEH Podcast. Thanks for that too.
