Incorrect margins and paddings when generating DOC file [message #655267] Fri, 18 February 2011 16:33 Go to next message

I am trying to do a report that will have a doc style for headers and indentation i.e.
1. Some topic
__The text here is alligned to the first leter
__1.2. Some subtopic
______Text here is also alligned to the first leter

...
By using styles I set correct margins (tried with paddings too) and everything looks good in PDF and HTML, but not in DOC.
Run the report here (very simple one) http://pics.daskalov.net/BIRT/SingleReport_short.rptdesign once to generate PDF and once DOC and will see the problem.
Word is just ignoring paddings and margins.
I tried with Indents, but then only the first line of any multi-line (like dynamic text) component is moved on right, while the next lines start from the beggining of the page.

Can you give me an advice how to move blocks of text on right, please? Is there a standard way for emulating "bullets and numbering"?

Anyone?
the obvious solution is to use 2 columns, the first used only to set indent on it, and second for the content.
But if there is a chance to do it with 1 column will be great.
