I am using spacemacs and try to use full text indentation. When I execute "visual-line-mode" and "adaptive-wrap-prefix-mode" by hand via M-x the text will indent, when I edit it. Of course I tried to automate this behaviour with the following configuration:

(with-eval-after-load 'org
   (setq org-startup-indented t) ; Enable `org-indent-mode' by default
   (add-hook 'org-mode-hook #'visual-line-mode)
   (add-hook 'org-mode-hook #'adaptive-wrap-prefix-mode))

But this won't work.. and I have no idea why. I also have tried several other solutions (like this one: Correct indentation for wrapped lines), but nothing worked for me.

Here a screenshot of my emacs setup after launch: Image after launch

And here is my emacs after I manually entered the above commands: enter image description here

Can someone help me with my problem or is there another solution for that problem?

Adding the following configurations to the org layer did the trick for me

 (org :variables
      org-startup-indented t
      org-indent-mode t)
