Indent, inches and pt


I tried to search this forum and also to google, but obviously I’m not Mr. Robot enough.

When I’m using the first line indent in my paragraphs, I’d like to have the first line indent to be 0.5 inches (around 1.25 cm). What pt setting should I have in the first line indent setting? 15pt? 18pt?

Thanks, guys!

36 points. 72 points=1 inch=2.54 cm.

Hope this helps!

Thank you so much! I was looking settings for novel manuscripts but I couldn’t figure out the first line indents when using points. But now this is crystal clear. Thanks again!
