Check this image out:

See how the one character format has the lines extending to the edge of the page, but the one under does not?

Where does one control this depth?  I cannot for the life of me figure out what governs this distance.

They're probably defined on the reference page

It's a paragraph, so the First and Left margins in the para designer.

That seems to only control the depth of the tab on the text; the lines remain unaffected. 

BUT:  If I change the lines from Double lines to Single Lines, they extend back to the edge like the ones above there that say "Note:"

I've inherited this formatting from the previous guy, and I cannot figure out where these line controls are.

They were on the reference page!

@Tech Comm Tools
Your suggestion also worked for the text inset -- would any of this change the background spacing as well?  I noticed that if I added a yellow background via the Pgf. Box, it extends to the edge of the area instead of stopping where the text and lines were...

Sorry, I'm not understanding your question. Can you provide an image?

See how the color extends past the edge there, but the indent on the text is set?
This is me adding a yellow Pgf Box to this particular Para.

Sorry, I still don't understand what you're trying to accomplish. Are you asking about a hypothetical?

Not a hypothetical, the image above is what's happening...  the yellow background...  I don't have any control over its stop and start.  I'm trying to figure out how to have that control like I do with indent, and like the lines referenced on the reference pages.

Hi Jim:

Are you clear on the answer to your second question? You mentioned using Paragraph Designer > Advanced > Pgf. Box. Matt is showing you how to do it with Paragraph Designer > Font > Background Color.

But note that neither does quite what I think you want, because neither responds to indent commands. I'm guessing you want the yellow to be the same width as the rules above and below? The only way I can think of to get that specific look is to use a single-cell table.
