    Why is my epub not indenting correctly

    gmarcus22

      I used place to import a .docx file to InDesign. I mapped the Styles from word to some indesign styles in my template.

       

      Mac OS 10.6, InDesign CC, Word 2011

       

      The style normal indents .3 inch at the start of a paragraph. It looks fine in the program. ~6 characters

      When I export as an epub, and then open in the Kindle Viewer (after conversion to .mobi), the indent is very small, only about three characters. I also emailed to my Kindle Ap on my iPhone and iPad, and it shows the same thing - small indents.

      I tried increasing the indent distance in the style, and it doesn't change how it looks at all in the Kindle Ap.

       

      Please help! Any ideas how to fix? I am almost ready to publish, but this one issue is holding me back. Thank you in advance.
