I'm a writer (non-programmer) using
org-mode mainly for prose notes/planning and writing.
I'm trying to enable first-line paragraph indents for text under Org headings. I discovered
paragraph-indent-mode, and after enabling it to no effect, I finally realized that it doesn't work, and Org's normal ability to first-line indent also doesn't work, when
org-indent-mode is enabled. With the latter enabled,
M-i indents the whole paragraph.
Are the two features incompatible? Ideally I would have my text body indented under the headline as per normal
org-indent-mode, and then
M-i would allow me to further indent the first line of a paragraph from the new margin (if I wanted to).
* org heading a paragraph nicely indented and aligned to the heading text (thx org-indent, you're really great, i'd hate to have to lose you just to enable first-line paragraph indents!). sentence sentence blah blah waffle waffle a new first-line indented prose paragraph starting here. and back to non-indented new paragraph still possible if i wanted to.
The idea is just to have the two types of paragraph breaks available.
I also have
edit: * M-i is bound to tab-to-tab-stop.
i'm running emacs 26.1 and org latest from melpa (9.3)
if i first run org-fill-paragraph, then the indentation works, but i don't at all like the idea of using that for my writing.
(i also have indent-tools installed (but disabled by default in org buffers). if i run indent-tools-indent, i also get whole paragraph indenting.)
