Paragraph Width

Hi there, I’m using the trial version of Scrivener and intend to buy. I read the long tutorial yesterday.

Can you please tell me how to change the paragraph width? I loaded in one of my novels and the paragraphs are too narrow.

Some word processors add a right-indent setting to paragraphs, to match whatever the right margin setting was. The easiest way to clean out unwanted formatting is to use the Documents/Convert/Formatting to Default Text Style menu command. But if that makes additional changes you’d rather not make, and just want to just change the right-indent, you would use the ruler (Ctrl-Shift-R) in a typical fashion to most word processors: select paragraphs, drag the right indent symbol all the way to the right of the window. Now the text should wrap to the width of the editor.

Thanks, I’ll go experiment with that!
