Formatting Tabs After Compilation

Can someone please help with this issue I’ve had ever since first starting with Scrivener? Whenever I compile into Word, Scrivener indents after a paragraph break, then adds a tab that brings the first word 12 spaces ahead, rather than 5. How can I fix this? (I do add tabs after paragraph breaks while I type, because it’s easier for me to review, and I’d like to be able to continue doing this.)
