Inconsistent paragraph indent in PDF

I use indentation for every paragraph, except the first one. I have defined this as presets in Scrivener. The text looks as expected in Scrivener—the first paragraph without indent, and the subsequent paragraphs indented. But when I compile the project to PDF, the second paragraph loses its indentation. What am I doing wrong?

Under the “Formatting” pane of Compile, click on “Options”. It probably has “Remove first paragraph indent” ticked. This will remove the indent of the first paragraph that doesn’t already have an indent (thus skipping titles and suchlike). In your case, because you are removing indents manually, you should un-tick this.

Hope that helps.

All the best,


That was it. Thank you very much. I have been using Scrivener since its beta days, but every day I learn a new feature.
All the best,
