I know it hasn’t been very long, but I’m gonna bump this as it’s hanging me up.
It’s strange how it just stopped working.
The spacing params work as usual. But none of the 3 indents are doing anything. IIRC this is the dialog that had that oddly worded confirmation. I recently (finally) clicked the do not ask again option. Could it be related to that? The timing is about the last time I used indents.
Yes, reset the warnings. You’ll then get the question of whether you want to apply indentation as well as spacing, to which you must previously have answered (and permanently set to) no.
The combo spacing/indentation box is a quirk of Qt, which we mean to revamp in the major-version overhaul. Until then, the question dialog tries to minimize the unwanted results of having indents set in the “spacing” controls.
Just trying to help as the OP needed to bump the thread, and as I’m on a Mac …
Although I have used Windows Scrivener to work with my collaborator, I never bothered with indents in Scrivener as I dealt with them after compiling using my WP, so I presumed Windows and the Mac would be alike in this.
Hey Mr X. No mea culpa necessary. I appreciate your help.
I never bothered with indents either until recently, and still don’t use them much. But as my documents have been getting cleaned up, I’ve started working with single 1.0x spaces between paras, so the indents become helpful. I find, not surprisingly, that it gives me a better sense of text density.
What I’d love is to be able to search paragraph codes, so I can replace double paragraphs with singles.
