At my university, there's a requirement to have paragraph indents to .7". I've tried using the ruler, but the closest I can get is 0.69". Is there a way to set this to exactly 0.7? I have a similar issue trying to set block quotes to 0.35"
Thanks,

Format -> Paragraph -> Tabs and Indents to set exact numbers.

Once you've formatted one paragraph to work the way you want, you can use the Project -> Project Settings -> Formatting pane to make it the default for this project, or Scrivener -> Scrivener Preferences -> Editing -> Formatting to make it the default Scrivener-wide.

Then, the Documents -> Convert -> Text to Default Formatting command will reformat existing text to the new default.
