Will I have to set a
i rst-line indent for
each paragraph in
the paper?
No. Each time you press the ENTER
key, paragraph formatting in the
previous paragraph carries forward
to the next paragraph. Thus, once
you set the i rst-line indent, its
format carries forward automatically
to each subsequent paragraph
you type.
