You can insert an indent here character, or look for it using a Sara, using the special character marker




The Indent Here character, also know as a temporary margin, lets you specify that all text after that point should wrap to the same horizontal level, until the occurrence of a hard return.


This zero-width character is displayed in QuarkXPress as a dotted vertical line, as shown above (use the option show invisibles from the View menu to display this character).

In InDesign, as shown on the right, below, this character appears as a dagger.


The text wrapping to that position can either occur automatically due to text wrapping, or by the use of soft returns, as is the case in the examples on the right.
