[Solved] How to reduce outline tab indentations globally?

Postby ErikJon » Wed Jan 09, 2013 7:53 pm

Hello, friends.

I have a Writer 3.21 document of 150 pages in outline form, and all the indentations are much too large at about 0.5 inches. I would like to reduce all of them globally to about 0.2 inches. How can I do that?

Turn on /Format, Styles and Formatting (or F11). On the dropdown at its window bottom, select Applied Styles. Press first Icon from left for Paragraph Styles and in turn right xlick on each style, select Modify, Tab tab, and adjust tabs for each style as required.

Rory,

I really owe you an apology for not responding, years ago, when you kindly offered these tips to solve my problem. I am afraid that I do not always get notified when a response is posted, and that is how it slipped through. Today I just got the idea of going through to see if I had left any posts unanswered and that is when I noticed yours. I am so sorry. Thanks again for your help.
