PDF conversion & indentation

I have a pdf document I want to convert to lrf using Calibre. I'm using the default settings as I'm not sure how they work. The conversion works well but my file loses all indentation (tabs at the beginning of new paragraphs). Is there a setting that allows me to pick up the tabs in my file?

That doesn't work for me unfortunately, would be great to have a method which did though as I miss the indents a lot too.
