Scrivener 2 | First Line Flush With the Margin Followed by Subsequent Paragraphs Indented

A Paperback novel always looks best if the first paragraph in a scene is flush with the margin, followed by subsequent paragraphs indented. 


In Scrivener 2 for Mac, this will be the default setting, but if for any reason you want to have all your paragraphs indented, watch the video below where I show you where to find the setting in the compile menu where you can change it.


In Scrivener for Windows the compile menu does not do this automatically like the Mac compile menu does, so you have to format your scenes in the editing window using the ruler to set your indents and then compile them using the project formatting rather than the compile menu formatting. Watch the video below to see how to do that.
