Which indent value gets displayed? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    If a paragraph has both firstline and hanging indent, then which indent gets higher priority?

    For example, a paragraph has

    firstline = 360

    left = 0

    hanging = 720

  • Hi AswiniRam,

    According to ISO/IEC 29500-1:2012 ind (Paragraph Indentation), the two are mutually exclusive. Here's the excerpt from the firstLine description:

    "The firstLine and hanging attributes are mutually exclusive, if both are specified, then the firstLine value is ignored."

    The description for hanging also says this.

    Does this help?
