[Solved] Adjust the marginal

Postby Harald12 » Sun Dec 01, 2019 11:57 am

I write on a exam and i get, when i hit return, automatic the new number of the actuell question and in tabbed marginal. Now i deleted question number 2 (the number) and hit return a couple of time, and set a number manually, and then the marginal adjustment was gone, and i have to use the key Tab to get the marginal adjustment. How can i get the left marginal adjustment back? Thankful for help.

I suspect that "left marginal adjustment" means "left indent". Margins are page properties. Indents are paragraph properties.

How did you add the number to the first question? Did you use automatic paragraph numbering or did you add the number manually? It would be helpful if you uploaded a sample document so we don't have to guess.

I get the question number 1 automatic, but now i have solved the problem with copy the part of the text after question number 2 ( and deleted that text part) and hit return where question number 1 ended, then i get question number2 with "marginal adjustment" back again. Then i paste the question number 2 text in there. Thank you.

I don't know why you would have to do it that way. I get the indent (it's not a margin) automatically when I type the second question and press Enter using AOO 4.1.7. The indent will not appear before pressing Enter. Maybe it's a bug in OOo 3.3.
