OK. I'll put it on the wishlist.

Works ok here!

Create a multiline paragraph, place the cursor say 1/2" or so from the
start on the first line, and choose Indent Here. It should cause the rest
of the paragraph to have a left margin at the same offset from the left
edge as were you put the command.

It is actually a keyboard command, but I put a short cut in the script menu
for those who might not ever read the manual Smile

Once you figure out how it works, then you can provide better input! I've
rewritten this some though to try and make it more understandable.

Moved to previous paragraph where it is talked about (not sure it needs to
be here at all since it is just the previous section that talks about it.

OK, I stuck the word "line" in there!

>*** Paragraph Attributes/Auto Hyphenation ***
>I don't think this section should be called "Auto Hyphenation" I think

True. Done.

>*** Paragraph Attributes/Auto Hyphenation/To change hyphenation for

True. Changed.

OK.
