Reply to: TOPLEAF: Want fixed indent for note text

What you probably have is a [u]Left Margin[/u] and [u]Label Offset[/u] of about half the width of the label image. This means that once the dropped label is passed, the text snaps back to the specified margin.

What you want is to increase those values to the full width of the label plus a small gap. This will be large enough so there is no snap back after the label.

Let me know if I've got your requirement right, and if the solution worked.


PS: I note that you have a and a separate Note: prefix which forms part of the main body of text to the right of the label. I might be inclined to create a new custom marker which can set the bold font directly, and avoid the use of . But that is a matter of personal taste, certainly what you've done is also correct.
