Question Indenting first line of each paragraph?

How do I indent the first line of each paragraph in Sigil when creating an ePub? Hitting "Tab" didn't work, and I couldn't find anything in the Tools or manual that seemed to be what I wanted.

Is there a simple way to do this, like something I can choose from one of the menus? Or do I have to insert some kind of code at the beginning of each paragraph?

I'm very new to all this--thanks!

That's usually achieved with CSS. The "text-indent" attribute is what you're looking for.

In the CSS file:
Code:
p {  
  text-indent: 1.2em;  
  }
Then in the HTML file:
Code:
<head>
  <title>My Html file</title>
  <link href="../Styles/stylesheet.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>
The above html code sssumes you have created a style sheet named stylesheet.css in your ePub (right-click on the "Styles" folder in the Book Browser and select "Add Blank Stylesheet" if you don't have a style sheet yet. Just make sure the file name is the same as what goes in the <link> tag above).

Just as an additional clarification, the change in the HTML file must be done while in CodeView instead of BookView.

Thanks for the info on how to create a stylesheet where one does not exist. I hadn't tumbled to it yet, since I mostly modify existing epubs.
