I am running LO 184.108.40.206 on KDE Neon 5.19.
Somehow, recently, probably when I upgraded to the current version of Neon (including a new version of LO), all my LO files have lost their initial tab stops. I use them to indent equations. I have 10 or so quite voluminous LO files and I would like to get the tabs back.
If I go to the beginning of any line and hit the tab key, nothing happens. No tab is inserted. (I have toggled on the formatting marks.) I have consulted the Help page on tabs and find it to be fairly abstruse. I want to get back my tabs on all my files, at least all those with a specific home-grown template. I would much prefer to avoid having to go through and redefine things for each line or even each paragraph.
If I do as in the help and select several paragraphs, the ruler bar is grayed out.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions. This is a Big Deal for me.
LATER, around 20:30 Paris time.
I don’t understand how to use this forum. I can’t add a comment, as that is reserved for a solution. So is all I can do edit my original post like I am doing now? And I don’t see any way to attach a document. I am using a custom template and have saved a page in that template to attach. But how? I do not have the pb if I just create a new text document without my template.
The equation are done in latex with TexMaths. I do try to keep things simple, so I have never learned how to use styles. But I wanted numbered headings 3 levels deep.
