Ability to insert an indent for paragraphs

I'm incapable of indenting the first line of a paragraph. This simple aspect of writing should be a no-brainer possibility for account users. Especially when so much of marketing is not only content, but how the content is presented. Capability to indent and format paragraphs properly is a necessity. I'm shocked this hasn't been addressed/fixed, it's such a simple formatting requirement.

Updating the status of this request to Under Consideration to support our new community idea statuses to add better insight to your feedback.


To summarize what’s happened with this feedback so far. We’ve made an update to our Cross Platform Editor to allow for multiple spaces to be entered. Previously, multiple spaces were stripped out. This is a great option if you are in need of a leading indent. We still have an open request internally to insert a tab and indenting multiple lines of text. At this time there aren’t any other updates on any movement on that request, but we’ll keep you posted in this thread.

Indent and/or tab functionality is VERY necessary.

I just find it so frustrating when I want to line up columned text.  PLEASE, can you work on adding a Tab feature??


I am requesting that I have the option of 5 spaces of indent for a new paragraph (instead of the automatic 1 space) and 2 spaces between the end of a sentence and a new sentence (instead of the automatic 1 space). Thank you

Ironically this comment area allows one to increase indent.

Indenting is such a necessary function. You must bring it back.


Please, please, please - give us the capability of using tabs!!


really need you to add a tab option into your text menu, please!!!


I need to have the option of indenting entire paragraphs without a number or a bullet point.

Somewhat related - my "work around" for not being able to indent paragraphs (adding 5 characters then making them the same color as the background) doesn't translate when an email is forwarded - for some reason the "invisible" characters show up.  So, two issues here:  add back the ability in indent paragraphs and forwarding so that the formatting holds up.
