Changing indents in spreadsheets

Indents in IBM® Connections Docs are inherited from imported files and preserved in exported files. You can copy or remove an indent in Connections Docs, but you cannot increase or decrease it.

Examples

  • When you import and export .xls and .ods files, only left-aligned indents are inherited and preserved.
  • When you import and export an .xlsx file, both left-aligned and right-aligned indents are inherited and preserved.

Things you can do with indents

  • Select some cells, and remove the indent by either setting text alignment in Connections Docs or clicking Remove Formatting.
  • Click a cell and insert a row or column, and the new row or column inherits the indent from the selected cell.
  • Copy and paste an indent.
