One of the very nice features of LibO Writer is that you can modify existing styles to your needs and you can create your own styles.

You can use the paragraph style Default Style as it is and create a new style (let me call it) Default_Indent) To create Default_Indent rightclick on DefaultStyle select new Tab: organize name: Default_Indent next style: Default_Indent linked with: DefaultStyle category: All styles or custom styles ( would use custom styles) Tab: indents and spacing indent for first line: check automatic or set a value you want.

With these two setting you can easily switch to the style you want to use.

I recommend you to read about the usage of styles in
