Tab and Indent


When I’ve used Microsoft Word, I press tab and write a line until the line goes to the next line underneath. The line does not start at the far left of the document but immediately below the line that’s above it.

I’ve tried doing the same thing in Scrivener but when using tabs, my next line beneath starts at the very left of the document instead of beneath where the line above is.

How can I change the settings so that they match Word? I’d like to create a template that I can copy from, but at the moment if I want to do the above I have to keep doing it manually and it takes a lot of time.

Does anybody have any ideas please?

Thank you,


The tab in Scrivener is - well - just a tab :wink:

To indent a paragraph you should use the ruler (Format > Show Ruler).
