Menu: Mathematica | Preferences... | Advanced | Open Option Inspector | Options for Global Preferences | Formatting Options | Expression Formatting | Linebreaking Options | LineIndent or when at Options for Global Preferences search for indent Or you can do it for the selected notebook rather than globally.

But I am not able to find a clear description of how to actually make the change. I see description of the option itself, but not how to actually use it to do the actual changes. I'd like to change the default to make LineIndent Larger, so the code will look more clear. I do not know how to make a specific open cell to have different LineIndent, or to change the whole notebook setting for this. I tried In[119]:= LineIndent/.Options[Cell] Out[119]= 1. In[114]:= SetOptions[Cell,LineIndent->2] LineIndent/.Options[Cell] Out[115]= 1. But I need to tell it which 'cell' I am talking about in the above. Need a CellID? Best, If I can change the default. I opend Mathematica's own Default.nb and Core.nb, and looked, but do not see the option there. No search opton Looked in preferences, and not there. Any one knows of simple instructions on how to make these change? thank you, --Nasser -- Bob Hanlon
