    a non-indented paragraph

    Hi,

    I have to write some paragraphes for my internship file. In the file, can I create a non-indented paragraph like:

    XXXXX (title)

    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (paragraph 1)
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (paragraph 2)
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    Thanks.

    Yes. In writing papers, paragraphs (spelled with no E!) should have EITHER an indent OR a space - never both.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Spaces instead of indenting are more and more common nowadays. I haven't indented a paragraph for years.
