[Tex/LaTex] How to indent the paragraphs which follow a heading


I am trying to write a text where the first line of each paragraph has an indent(tab). But for some reason, in a chapter or a section or subsection, except the first paragraph, the rest of the paragraphs have an indent(tab). Is there any way to add an indent to the first paragraph in a chapter or section or subsection?

Best Answer

The easiest method is to call


in your preamble. This package is included in all LaTeX distributions.

The standard setting of LaTeX is to suppress indentation in the first paragraph after a sectional title, which is standard usage in American typography.

Some babel language settings do similarly to indentfirst, for instance the French language definition file does, to set up the document according to French typographic traditions.
