In this short article, we'll show you how to set up a block quote in a Word document.

This feature is not officially supported yet, but it does work!

(If you're just looking to get started using our Word writing mode, please see this article!)

To create a block quote in Word, that will be centered on the page and set out from both the left and right margins of the page, please follow these instructions:

1. Hit enter before the first word of the quote, and after the last word of the quote

2. Highlight the text

3. Right click and select "Paragraph..."

4. Under "Indentation" change "Left:" to "0.5 cm"

5. Click "OK".

6. Save the change

7. Upload the Word document to Leanpub again and create a new preview.

These instructions were copied from this article.

Here's an example of what this would look like in a PDF:

OK, that's it!
