In each chapter now the first paragraph is not indented. But, to get all paragraphs to be equally indented I need some steps.


To indent the first paragraph after every section unit, follow the instructions in No indent in the first paragraph in a section? That is, load the indentfirst package as part of your preamble.

For a specific 5-space indentation, also add \settowidth{\parindent}{~~~~~} to the preamble. This adjust the width of \parindent - the measure by which paragraphs are indented to the width of 5 non-breaking spaces.

Note though that the presentation (in my opinion) may seem awkward:

  • @kuru: It shouldn't, but I wouldn't know what else you might be doing with your document without more details...
