Quite easy: Create a new paragraph style. In the style editor set the size of 
the left indentation as you need it. That's all you need to do since Scribus 
does autmatically set a negative value for the first line (you can change 
this value, of course). Apply the style in SE or the properties palette. Et 
voil?: your hanging paragraph.

If you can reproduce this behaviour, you should file a bug report.

Did you save the document before the crash?
