  • ParagraphIndent is an option for Cell which specifies how far in printer's points to indent the first line of each paragraph of text.
  • A new paragraph is taken to start at the beginning of a cell, and after every explicit Return character in your text.
  • Negative settings for ParagraphIndent make the first line of each paragraph stick out to the left.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.10.10.
