I'm starting work on a long hierarchical book, and the amount of indentation from level to level in both the Binder and the Outliner just isn't sufficient to make the structure easy to "get" at a glance.
Here's my original request from the Wishlist forum:
I noticed in going though the program features that Options contains a way to indent the Binder [and Outliner] items as a block, i.e., all together.
What I'd like is the option to increase the amount indent from level to level. That is, to spread out the Binder [and Outliner] items horizontally (the horizontal equivalent of increasing line spacing vertically, which is available).
On some systems, and with complex outline structures, the Binder in the RC11 beta is just too tight horizontally to easily see what's at what level.
Example: Let's say the program default is to indent each level by 6 points, or 6 px, or whatever the measurement is. A new "Increasing Indent" item would add one unit to the default indent at each level for each click of the button.
This would be similar to the item "Binder and Outliner Extra Indent", except that this item changes the indent of the whole block, but doesn't add extra horizontal space to the individual items — doesn't spread them out.
(Or maybe this Option item was intended to add the extra space to individual items — and doesn't work as intended?)
At the very least, please change the built-in indent parameter so that the left edge of the subordinate element's icon is no further left than the left edge of the text above it.
