# First line of first paragraph after section/subsection is indented

When writing an essay with the article class, the first line after a section or subsection has somewhere along the way become indented.

According to typographic standards (American standards, I believe?) the first line in a paragraph following a heading should not be indented. Somehow, my first lines have become indented.

I am using input to handle the text below a section, looking something like this:

\subsection{Section name}
\begin{multicols}{2}
\input{Sections/Text.tex}
\end{multicols}


As you can see, I am using the multicol package to enable multiple columns. The other packages (relevant to my problem) I am using are: MinionPro, simplemargins and lettrine (although I haven't implemented it in the text yet).

Is there something apparent that I've missed? Is there a package conflict here, perhaps? If the problem lies in the multicols package, is there a solution to my problem where I can keep my two-column-layout?

you will need to provide a minimal example to make it easier to get answers. –  Yiannis Lazarides Nov 15 '10 at 11:16

The multicol manual (Section 2 - The User Interface, p. 2ff) offers a very simple solution.

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,english]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{babel}
\usepackage{multicol}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\begin{document}
\begin{multicols}{2}[\section{A Section title}]
\blindtext
\end{multicols}
\end{document}


Note that the blindtext package is only for creating dummy text thus not part of the solution.

Worked perfectly. Thank you! –  Doggie52 Nov 15 '10 at 14:38
