Hi all. I have a little problem. How do I turn all the indents back on for a shape? I have text in a rectangle and I want to increase the indents on the edges. I need to reduce the indents on the left and right and they are not active and I don't know how to activate them back. I will be very glad to get answers with explanatory screenshots, as the program interface is very complicated to understand.

Hi @Leoekfwmf , the text frame must be a rectangle or square for the 4 insets to be available

Your rectangle must be not quite a real rectangle - other shapes will not allow different indents.  Select your text box and go to Object > Convert Shape > Rectangle

A screen shot might help. If you're having as issue with text not wrapping around a shape, tick Ignore Text Wrap to see if that overcomes the isssue.

Additional screenshots. The indents increase evenly on all sides, and I only need to increase the indents on the left and right. There is no function to select the desired indents.

Thank you George, you have helped me a lot! I made the corners rounded and the function didn't work. You have a lot of experience thank you.)
