No row indent in OO4 Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Has anyone else noticed that you cannot control row indentation on a per-heading type basis in OO4 as you could do in OO3? Does anyone else miss this feature? Seems like a huge omission to me. What does everyone else think?
 
To clarify: you can turn child indentation on or off on a per-row basis ("Indent children" in the Style inspector), and you can control the global setting for how far indented rows are inset ("Indent child rows" in the Outline inspector), but you can't control that distance on a per-group basis. Our intent was to make it easier to keep consistent indentation while still allowing indentation to be disabled in certain sections of a document, which we think better matches what people usually wanted from this feature.

Anyone negatively impacted by this change is encouraged to email support to let us know, ideally including concrete examples to help us understand and evaluate these uses.
 
Rows can have various headers. Take legal numbering as an example. I can have rows that look like this:
1. Row
1.1 Row
1.1.1 Row
In cases like this -- where the prefix for a row depends on the depth of the row -- the indentation of children will/should vary for each row.

If all we have available is a static level of indentation, some children will indent beneath their row contents while others indent beneath their row prefixes.

Even with the existing one-size-fits-all approach, child indentation is limited to 24 points. A less than optimal solution would be to remove the 25 point limit.
