Is there a way to set noindent for all paragraphs gloablly in latex, so that I do not have to manually do \noindent before each paragraph?

Set \parindent to 0pt in the preamble:

\setlength\parindent{0pt}

• Should it not be \setlength{\parindent}{0pt}? Both seem to be LaTeX notations but I thought the first pair of parentheses is necessary. – Harold Cavendish Sep 7 '11 at 20:02
• @Harrold: you can do both - it's a matter of taste. – topskip Sep 7 '11 at 20:04
• @Harrold: I think these braces are comparable to those discussed at tex.stackexchange.com/questions/1914/… – doncherry Sep 7 '11 at 20:11

Set \parindent to 0pt by typing

\setlength\parindent{0pt}


in the preamble (before \begin{document})
