Automatic hanging indents/"indent to here" for lists
Currently, creating hanging indents for lists requires either manually adding "indent to here" ahead of every list item, or fiddling with the left indent and first line indent options of the list paragraph style until the desired effect is achieved-- a process that must be repeated if the type size changes or for subsequent list levels.
Since hanging indents are what one almost always desires when creating lists, it would be great if this was a checkbox option one could simply turn on when setting up list styles. With the option on, InDesign would automatically indent all text to the same place without the user having to do any manual tweaks.
Attached is an image that demonstrates the desired end effect of this feature. Thanks for considering it!

I agree; there should be a way to do this by ticking a box, not doing first-line-indent math.

It is possible, but the original poster is saying (and I agree) it should be the default.

Is this, what you mean? This is already possible using negative first line indents in combination with the bulleted list feature.
