Hello, HOW ARE YOU?

I've noticed after using the indent tag, if you go back to edit your post (adding lines of text, fixing errors), the thread's spacing will reduce causing everything you're trying to keep organized turn into... well, basically a bloody mess.

I use the indent tag a lot in a few of my threads to keep things looking nice and tidy, but it's becoming a bit of a hassle to have to edit my whole entire thread after trying to fix one line of text.

Is there perhaps a fix to the space reduction issue editing threads that use the indent tag?
Maybe there's a line break/paragraph tag that I'm not knowing about and my constant use the of enter button is making me the mega noob of these forums?

WYSIWYG editor fail. If you want proper tagging, ditch the editor. :[

WHAT. D:
Aw man, I love my angry indent tags.

Oh well, I'm gonna go pout and attempt to CSS my way around it.

Things just can't be easy with BB Code. :(

Well CSS indents are more flexible but seriously, the standard editor works better.

Are you talking about just a standard phpBB editor unmodified? Or the tag viewer editor you get from the "Switch editor mode" button?

I attempted to switch to the tag viewer to see where all of my indent tags where placed, and I noticed they were in the most obtuse places. The /INDENT tag was right in front of the start of another paragraph spaced a few lines below the indented paragraph.

Even after I fixed the location of the tags I still got the problem.

I figured CSS would have been much more flexible. I just need to find the energy to tinker with it. :|
