# \usepackage{indentfirst} [closed]

I have been typing up a project in LaTeX recently and I realised that the indentation was not working at all on any of my document. I therefore looked up a way to resolve this online and found on a site that if you want to overide the default indentations use: \usepackage{indentfirst}.

I tried this and it seemed to work.

However when I started to go through my document, I realised that actually it had only indented the first paragraph in the first 2 pages out of the 6 in question and after subsection 3.2, all the following paragraphs up to section 5 had not been indented at all.

Does anybody know why?

Welcome to TeX.sx! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. – Marco Daniel Mar 16 '12 at 17:03
Could you state your requirements more explicitly. "was not working out" isn't that helpful. You need the first paragraphs after a sectioning command indented? Also if your current solution stops working after some pages we would need to see the related code (in minimized form) in order to help you. – Martin Scharrer Mar 16 '12 at 17:18
You are probably using \\ to end paragraphs, which is wrong. Paragraphs should be separated by a blank line in the .tex file. – egreg Mar 16 '12 at 18:16
No MWE after several weeks => too localized. – Joseph Wright Apr 14 '12 at 21:40
