ASK US: On an APA style paper, do I indent the first line

When writing your book you should separate the writing from the formatting. Write first, format later. However, there are some steps you can make when writing your book in Microsoft Word that will make the job of formatting your book easier and help prevent errors in the book formatting process.

You can indent a single paragraph using styles. For example, suppose we want to indent a paragraph 55 points. First, we create a class called indented with the following style rules. Put this code in the HEAD section of your document.

It works, but treats the whole article as one paragraph I 8767 m trying to post a short story with many paragraphs
all I cab do is insert one CR after another and that 8767 s a royal pain

This is a little tricky! Ideally, a style would be created ahead of time for those centered lines and the style applied when needed instead of hitting the center button.

Your article taught me how to eliminate improper tabs and create that first line paragraph indentation, but it leaves me with a huge headache problem. Every single centered line is now misaligned, because the first line paragraph indentation has indented them in addition to them being centered. The only way I can figure out to fix this is to manually go through the document and use the back space button and re-center each and every line.

A single paragraph break should always be used between paragraphs, not two or more. If you find it easier to write with extra space between paragraphs then you can change the style of Normal (or whatever style you are using for your chapter text) to add the space for you automatically. Using the directions above, uncheck the Don’t add space between paragraphs of the same style and make sure Auto is selected for space above and below.

Best wishes
