Type Default Value Read Only Description
Double 0 No The first line of paragraph indent.




This property determines the horizontal indent applied to the first line of every paragraph.

If the indent is positive, the start of the first line is shifted to the right by the specified number of units. If the indent is negative, it is shifted to the left by the specified number of units.




In this example, we add a block of text to a document. We specify a ParaSpacing value to space out the paragraphs and an Indent value to indent the first line of each paragraph.
