Description poblavor 2006-02-06 10:08:10 UTC
In Slide/Note Master mode, I can't modify the idents of the paragraph.

1. From the main menu, choose File.New.Presentation
2. From the main menu, choose View.Master.Slide_Master
3. Click the first line of the outline (the one reading "Click to edit the 
outline format")
4. In the right-click menu, choose "Paragraph..."
5. In the "Indents and spacing" tab, modify the indents settings (eg. "before 
text" = 0, "after text" = 0, "first line" = 0)
6. Click OK
7. Nothing changed on-screen...
8. In the right-click menu, choose "Paragraph..."
9. You'll see that the settings are back to their defaults (1.2cm; 0cm; -0.9cm)

You'll meet the same problem if you want to change the Paragraph Indents of the 
Notes Master.

Neither can you change these Master settings through the use of the ruler 

But you can change them -- manually and slide by slide -- through any method 
when you are in Normal mode or Notes mode.

In my mind this is not a bug but a feature.
we should assign the changes on the masterslide to the default style in the stylist.
