In Lyx, how can I make sure that the first line of each Chapter is indented? I'm writing a "report" document, if that matters.


Indentation on the first paragraph can be forced in this way.
Insert into Document->Settings->LaTeX Preamble this line:


However that appears in lyx

  • Yes, that's right. I don't know where or how to insert it with Lyx, though. – Ricky Robinson Sep 17 '12 at 15:56
  • random google search for "usepackage lyx" turned up lyx.475766.n2.nabble.com/… which details the menu options for adding stuff to the preamble (last bit of the last answer) – David Carlisle Sep 17 '12 at 16:01

    @RickyRobinson Go to Document Settings > LaTeX Preamble. Also you might want to look at the useful Help files. Start from the top and work your way down. The first few are user-friendly and not too technical. – scottkosty Sep 17 '12 at 17:21
