Can anyone help me to sort-out this issue!!!
I wrote a novel. The first line paragraph indents seem too large compared to other similar novels.
I would like to make them smaller, like .25 inches, not the current .5 inch. I cannot figure out a way to do that in Bookwright. Customer support has not been able to help. I have imported with .5, .25 and with no indents and they all end up looking the same (after tabbing the indent for the latter). Please help.

I also dislike the .5 indent. It makes the book look less than professional.
Please provide a solution.
It's annoying. Support said the only thing to do is manually change the indent - but that's no good, I'm not going to manually change every paragraph and line of dialogue in my novel! Blurb need to rectify this, as I am looking elsewhere now.
has there been any improvement with this issue?
I don't think so. I hope they would get back to me if they fix that, as I exchanged messages with support people about it, and haven't proceeded with my book order.
Couldn't agree more. I've tried everything over the last two days to deal with this-- multiple imports with different indents, etc. Is Blurb kidding? A HALF-INCH indent? I can't find a single novel on my shelf that has formatting like this-- for good reason: it looks amateur.
What is going on here? This is an easy fix (I work in software), but until it's done, I can't use this program.
So glad I just read this and didn't waste any more time. I'm not about to reformat a 105K word novel.
Anyone found anything better to use?
I did try writing to the help desk about this. I got a form letter email back explaiing the "safe areas" on the page. Seriously? When did blurb start outsourcing to Microsoft in Bangalore?
I then tried again. No response yet. Blurb = Fail.
I went to Amazon's CreateSpace. They provide an easy to use Word template that turned out great. Blurb is wonderful for picture books, but for a book that is all text, I recommend CreateSpace.
