Whatever happened to the indent???

    Why can I no longer indent each new paragraph in the text capsules? I noticed this a while back-I went to do some editing on an older hub and when I saved the capsule, the indent was gone. This drives me crazy! yikes

    I prefer the look of indented paragraphs because I think it makes the text look neater and more put together. It's just a personal (probably OCD lol) thing and I've been quietly dealing with it in hopes it would somehow magically come back but it hasn't.
    So, I'm formally asking---can we please have the option to indent a line? Pretty please??

      Sure, I'll bring it up in our next community meeting! I didn't even know the option had disappeared... thanks for bringing it up!

        Hi again To Start Again!
        I brought this up in our community meeting yesterday only to discover that the move was actually intentional! Indeed, to make formatting on HubPages more uniform, we chose to make indentation impossible (it is generally seen as unnecessary for online formats).
        I am sorry to be depriving you of your preferred formatting method, but at least I can provide our reasoning behind the limited paragraph formatting options we offer. I hope that counts for something. ^_^;;

          lol thanks Simone- I appreciate your bringing it up and letting me know! That's one of the great things about this place smile
          No worries, I guess I'll just have to conform hahaha

    I wonder if tab would work. Someone else can try it. I'm not sufficiently motivated. big_smile

      it makes it go to the next option, takes you away from the text or at least it did the last time I tried...

      I am equally unexplained as to this post.

        I tried tab before. I thought i replied that but I'm not motivated enough to go back and check lol lol
        It just takes you to the next option for the capsule or out of the capsule or something I don't remember exactly but it didn't work...
