hopefully this is a simple one.

I have a large document    all paragraphs are numbered

eg
1.1.1.1  Hello this is a test
     Designed to provoke an emotional response


how do i get the second and subsequent lines to align with the first line like this

1.1.1.1  Hello this is a test
             Designed to provoke an emotional response

Hello,

that depends. Is there a paragraph mark after "1.1.1.1  Hello this is a test" ?? Is this line formatted with a Heading style?

If so, you will need to indent the following paragraph to suit.

If you do not have a paragraph mark after "1.1.1.1  Hello this is a test" but only a line break, just format the paragraph with a hanging indent.

If that does not work, please post a sample file, so we can see how your text is formatted.

cheers, teylyn

yes

1.1.1.1 is "block"

so i would have to go to each paragraph and indent manually?

What do you mean by

>> 1.1.1.1 is "block"

Is there a paragraph mark at the end or a line break? If this is a paragraph in its own right, is it formatted with a Heading style? If so, you can define a style for the following paragraph with the correct indent. If not, use hanging indents.

Rather than using your own terminology to describe the document, just post a sample file and we can see what's really going on.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

I have modified your style via the second paragraph to change the hanging indent a bit and then updated the style via the styles pane and the modify style selection.
