Hi,

 

I am having a page with multiple paragraphs and I have selected the whole text and tried to apply a left indent and the trouble is it is only getting applies to the first line of the text box. What I want is all the paragraph should have an indent. Please help! I tried applying the paragraph styles and many things. It doesn't seem to work.

Hi @Abhimanue381539090g7u , As others are suggesting , you are probably using shift-return for forced line breaks, and you need a single paragraph return with more Space Above:

Your left intend is 0 and only the first line has an intent. That is what you get.
But there are siome other problems:

  1. You work without paragraph styles, only manual overrides. That should not be.
  2. You separate the headline from the text. Good practice is to use 1 frame.

99.99% you have forced line breaks - instead of separate paragraphs.
