# Unexpected indent for all bold paragraphs after first

After the first lines in a paragraph I have an unexpected indent. My question here is why is it there and how can I avoid it?

My .tex file is like this:
\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,BCOR10mm,DIV11,toc=listof]{scrbook}
.........

\chapter{chapterTitle}

\section{sectionTitle}

\textbf{part1}: +5 xyz\\*
\textit{description}\\*

\textit{description}\\

......


Part 1 has no indenting, but part 2 and part 3 each start with the bold parts indented (if something from teh comments or description (description as a whole are not indented thus only the bold part is indented each) is in a new line then it is not indented each.

• because you start new paragraphs, and paragraphs apart the first paragraph of a section are indented. if you don't want them to be indented use \noindent, i.e., \noindent\textbf{part2}... Jul 20, 2014 at 7:40
• An empty line signifies a paragraph break, and the default way to mark new paragraphs is to start a new line and indent the first line of the paragraph. Generally you should (almost) never have to use \\  in the text, perhaps section 3.10 Paragraph markup of the KOMA-script manual is of interest. Jul 20, 2014 at 7:40
• Just in case you want to remove all indents and use blank lines instead, you might try to add parskip=full to the KOMA-script options.

I would use \subsection or \subsection*, this will do what you want.
Alternatively put \noindent before the bold parts.
