So here's an example of one of those typographical pet peeves of mine where you have punctuation that's not hanging. Here we have a quote and typographically, these quote marks should hang out passed to the left of the left edge line of the text there. And it just doesn't look great when the quote mark is included in with the regular text. So we want to hang the punctuation and it turns out, Photoshop has a very easy way to do that. It's just that it's a very buried feature. You have to kind of dig around and find for it. So to do it, let's get our Text tool, then we'll click into this text layer here and it's an option of a panel, so you have to bring open the Paragraph panel.
You can either do Command+M or Ctrl+M to open up the panel or you can click this little toggle here to open up the Paragraph panel and every panel has what we call a fly-out menu. In the upper right hand corner of the panel there is a little down arrow, looks like a little widget there. So we click on that and the first item in that menu is Roman Hanging Punctuation, and we'll just choose that, and there it is. It instantly hangs your punctuation outside the left hand edge and it looks much better. Here is before, here is after, I'm just doing Command+Z or Ctrl+Z to kind of toggle that in. I hope you will agree that that looks much better. So it is a buried feature, but it is available on the Paragraph panel.
