Post by blueviceroy » Mon Oct 22, 2007 4:32 pm

How can I change the paragraph format so the indent is on the left?

I don't understand.

When I post all the lines begin on the extreme left ,even if I indent properly the pargraphs are spaced on the right rather than the left.

Are you composing on a word processor and importing it, or composing directly in the board's composition box? Other than than, all I can think of is that the browser you are using might be a factor. I use Firefox now, but used to use Safari and never had a problem. But I always compose in the board's composition box.

I've seen the same issue ever since I came to this board. It doesn't matter if I write on a word processor and import or use the boards composition box. The format, or settings, or something always defaults to reduce space to the left. I just learned to live with it.

I never indent to begin with so it has never been something that I noticed.

BB code has "indent" tags.

[indent]But they don't seem to be enabled on this board.[/indent] :D

What I find a little strange is having avatars on the right-hand of the page, instead of the left, where the eye naturally expects them.
