(Is it only me who finds the first-line-indent and the right-margin
symbol too inconspicuous? It could really be a bit bigger.)
May I pose a "small" feature wish? It would be nice if one could move
the first-line indent and the left margin simultaneously, e.g. when
pressing ctrl and dragging either. That way one could change the margin
without affecting the amount of indention.
OpenOffice's marker does:
v <------ drag indent
^ <------ drag both, unless Ctrl is pressed, then drag only margin
Microsoft Word allows this with a left-margin marker which looks like:
v <--- drag indent
^ <--- drag margin
# <--- drag both
