In order to create a hanging indent on your second line of each reference in your bibliography (e.g. in order to get your author names to stand out), you need to alter the Harvard at Newcastle style itself. This will be a local style to you that others won’t be able to see and it will only appear on your drop down style list. Please be assured that it won't insert an indent on the main body of your text, but will only apply to your bibliography. And like any other style in EndNote, you can switch back to the non-indented Harvard at Newcastle style anytime if you change your mind. To apply the indent, please do the following:

1. Open your EndNote library and make sure Harvard at Newcastle is selected at the top in the drop down list.

2. In your EndNote library, go to edit > output styles > Edit ‘Harvard at Newcastle.

3. Then under the Bibliography section click on layout and where it says hanging indent on the right hand side, make sure you change it to ‘All paragraphs’ (this is easy to miss as it's in the bottom, far right hand side of the page. Please see the yellow highlighted sections below)

4. Click on the small ‘x’ at the top right hand side of the screen and you’ll be asked if you want to save changes to this style. Select yes.

5. Then save the style as Harvard at Newcastle Hanging Indent

6. Then after it has saved, go back to your Endnote library and from the drop down box at top left hand side, click on 'select another style'. Then a dialog box will appear in middle of page. Click on Harvard at Newcastle Hanging Indent and click choose (see yellow boxes below).

7. Then go to your word document and select Harvard at Newcastle Hanging indent from the top drop down box and your bibliography should change to have the indent in. Make sure your instant formatting button is also turned on. See below yellow sections.


To modify the size of the indent, you can do that by opening the 'Configure Bibliography' box (by clicking the small arrow in the bottom right corner of the Bibliography section of the EndNote toolbar in Word), then using the Layout tab.
