    Indenting under previous lines of text

    Trains1985

      If I want to indent a line, sometimes I can just use the Space Bar\Tab key, and it works great. However, other times the I can't do either. How do I enable my computer to let me indent when this occurs?

          The proper way to indent second and following lines of a paragraph depends on if you have a preset amount of indent desired, or if you want to do it to a random point.

           

          For a preset, consistent, indent for all paragraphs create a style and add a left indent of the correct amount, then a negative first line indent to match. To indent to a random point based on the the text you are typing, insert a Indent To Here special character where you want the following lines to begin.

            Peter: Thank you very much for your help. This is the first time I am using InDesign, for using this approach: making a book. And, yes, I should have written 104 pages, for the other one.
