I know this a really simple thing, and I have even done it in the past, but I can’t figure it out, and though I know it’s in the documentation, I’m not finding it there either.
I’d like to set up a margin for a number of selected paragraphs, so that in the editor they will display fully left aligned, without an indent at their start, or a hanging indent, but simply pushed in on the left, and if possible the right as well. Like the way block quotes are handled. With everything that follows reverting to the default margins.
I’m not concerned with compile settings, just what I see i the editor.
I would have thought that’s how it works. But I’m unable to drag the entire 3-part tab/indent slider as a single unit. I can drag the upper one, and get a conventional indent, and then drag the lower pair to the same position, for a hanging indent, which at least visually accomplishes the same thing. But not the whole.
The two lower ones seen locked together, and fully independent of the upper one.
Right. That’s what I had been trying to do. There appears to be an inconsistency in how it works. It’s as though some of the pixels in the lower rectangle are not mapping correctly.
Here’s a screen cap.
(The screen cap also happens to show how, when you perform an action on selected text, and then undo that action, the text selection is lost and has to be selected again. As though it assumes that the wrong text had been selected, in addition to or rather than, the wrong command having been issued. But that’s another issue for another thread.)
