I wanted to set the Table Contents style to use a hanging indent. Unfortunately, what I get seems to ignore the first line indent of 0" and I just get a hard left edge at .25". I can't see what I'm doing wrong here--can someone help? Thanks!

The position of the first line indent is not absolute, but relative to the "before text" indent. So, in the paragraph style you use in the table set the first line indent as a negative value. That's it: if "before text indent" is 0.6 cm, set a first line indent of -0.6 cm to get the first line "back to zero."

Okay, that's it, thanks! Entirely too simple, but I just didn't understand the "relative" part.
