    Re: Indents & Things (2K)

    If I'm reading your post right, you have three text boxes in which the first line has a hanging indent and you don't want to have a hanging indent in any of the boxes. I'm also assuming that if you try to insert a new text box, you get the same behavior in the first line.

    If this is the case, you will need to change the default setting for the text box. To do this, you need to find the text box that was used to set the default. Click on each text box and look at your horizontal ruler to see if you can see the indent tabs (they are triangles, one on top of the other). If you can't see the horizontal rule, click View | Rulers.

    Once you have found the master text box in which the indent for the first line was set, slide the top indent marker to the left so that it is over the bottom indent marker. Now, right click on the tex box and click on Set AutoShape Default. This will set the defaults for any new text boxes you enter in the presentation. Now, copy the text from another text box, create a new text box, and use Edit | Paste Special | Unformatted text to move the text to the new text box (don't just copy, it will take with it the format from the old text box). After you are done, delete the bad text boxes.

    Finally, if you do not find a master text box that allows you to change the indent of the first line and Set AutoShape Default, you'll probably need to create a new presentation, copy the slides from the old presentation into it ,and see if you can move the text from the bad text boxes into new text boxes in the new presentation.
