How can I change the indentation in my book?

Our indentation is set up to reflect industry standards for fiction.

We have a set of default indentation rules, which help to make authors’ books look as professional as possible. All paragraphs after a double line break will start outdented, and all paragraphs after that will be indented.

If you really want to remove indentation, you can use soft breaks (Shift + Enter). If you need sections of text outdented, you should be using block quotes (which can also have soft breaks inside them, if needed).
