I want to align my text and also use indent at each paragraph.But it seems i can use only one of them (either alignment or indent).



\section {Heading}

\indent Here is text.....

\par\indent Another text,....

Are you sure you want this? flushleft uses \raggedright which sets \parindent to 0 if you \setlength\parindent{2em} after starting the environment you will get a visible indent again.

Ok, thanks , work great.But why are you saying if i am sure about that?Is there another way to have alignment with indent? – George May 12 '12 at 12:44
No, I meant that it's a rather unusual style to want. If you look at published works then I would guess that you won't see this often. – David Carlisle May 12 '12 at 12:54
