Description Jesse Kennedy 2012-04-30 04:56:55 UTC
Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Set a first line indent
2. Type something and center it

Current behavior:
Text is centered between the first line indent and end of line.

Expected behavior:
First line indentation should not affect the center point of text.

I can confirm the behavior but I can't confirm that we want to change it. If a user wants centered based off of current position, then it would be hard to do it when your solution is implemented. This is vs. a user who wants it true center just not indenting first. 

I'll mark as an enhancement request - lowest. This behavior is as intended but your solution might be desired. Marking it as lowest just because it works as planned and there is an incredibly easy work around (just don't indent). This way a developer can take a look and decide if we want to implement the change.

Thanks for understanding and helping out. We'll see what happens with this one.

This is NOTABUG in my opinion, and if is an enhancement I think it should be WONTFIX.

If a user sets a paragraph to use First Line Indent and then set the paragraph to align center, then he should expect that the first line indent is still taken effect.

Also, I notice that MSO 2010 also treat it this way.

@Miklos Vajna: If you agree with me, then shall we close this as RESOLVED WONTFIX?

Keeping the MSO compat looks good, yes.
Comment 5 Kevin Suo 2022-01-31 11:40:58 UTC
Closed as WONTFIX per comment 3 and comment 4.
