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.

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.

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.
