PUB: Change First Line Indents Changes Left Indent to Zero

PUB: Change First Line Indents Changes Left Indent to Zero

Q101528

-------------------------------------------------------------------
The information in this article applies to:

 - Microsoft Publisher for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a
 - Microsoft Publisher for Windows 95, version 3.0
 - Microsoft Publisher 97
-------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY
=======

When you change first-line indents in multiple paragraphs that have
different left indents, the left indents will be set to zero, even if you
do not change the value.

Because no value has been assigned to the left indents, you may expect
the left indents to remain unchanged.

You can however change the value thereby changing all the selected
paragraphs left indent value.

This can present a problem if you have an outline in which you want to
change just the first-line indents.

Workaround
----------

Format each paragraph separately or use Styles and apply a separate style
to each indentation level.
