Using Indent with the new template

ValleyCommunity

Hello - this is probably an easy thing, but I need help. We recently switched templates so we can embed videos. The new format choices are not allowing for indenting texts - at least as far as I can find. I don't want to add bullets or numbers; I just want to indent some text. Can someone give me some help? Thanks!

Hi @ValleyCommunity. At this time, there is not an indent capability in our editor. As a workaround, you can insert underscores and change the font color to match the background color of the block so it resembles an indent. I'll track this request in your account.  

 

For others who come across this post, if you wish to have indentation available in your account, please visit this post on our Feedback board to vote for the idea. That post and the entire Feedback area is monitored by our Product teams more than Get Help.

Using this workaround is not mobile friendly. Any plans for a more permanent solution? Thanks!

This does not work.  First, I would have to put underscores at the start of every line.  Second, line breaks are determined by the width of the user's browser.  They change all the time.  The inserted underscores will not remain at the start of each line.

Is this going to be fixed soon? It's a bit ridiculous that it's taking this long to resolve this.

Hello @CarleneS,

You seriously can't indent a line or paragraph? That should be a basic function.

This is all because they won't allow us to edit the html code. I am trying to a block quote and I am not able. I don't like how dumbed down the new templates are.

Hello @The_Hearts_Center,

 

We do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. I will gladly submit your feedback on this!
