I am using memoir with section as chapter style. I want to indent chapter style to the right. Right now I have:

Chapter 1

    Text of first paragraph (first line)
Text of first paragraph (rest of paragraph)

But I want:

    Chapter 1

    Text of first paragraph (first line)
Text of first paragraph (rest of paragraph)

What parameter should I change?

Edit: Here is MWE:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper,oneside]{memoir}


\usepackage{indentfirst}
\parindent 1.25cm
\chapterstyle{section}
\secindent\parindent\relax

\renewcommand{\thechapter}{\arabic{chapter}.}
\renewcommand{\thesection}{\thechapter\arabic{section}}

\begin{document}

\chapter{Chapter}
\par
test test test test test

\section{Section}
\par
test test test test test

\end{document}

@Francis If I use your idea it works but for section title!

Add

\chapindent\parindent\relax
\renewcommand{\printchapternum}{\hspace{\chapindent}\chapnumfont \thechapter\space}

to the preamble.

Example:

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper,oneside]{memoir}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\usepackage{indentfirst}
\parindent 1.25cm
\chapterstyle{section}

\renewcommand{\thechapter}{\arabic{chapter}.}
\renewcommand{\thesection}{\thechapter\arabic{section}}

\chapindent\parindent\relax
\renewcommand{\printchapternum}{\hspace{\chapindent}\chapnumfont \thechapter\space}

\begin{document}

\chapter{Chapter}
\lipsum[2-3]

\section{Section}
\lipsum[1]

\end{document}

Result:

  • It doesn't work. I don't need to indent section or paragraph. I need to indent chapter title. Just the chapter title style is "section"! – alchemist_ bg Oct 11 '13 at 6:08
  • Now with this code works perfect! – alchemist_ bg Oct 11 '13 at 6:31
