Is there a way to change paragraph formatting while editing a Note?

Example: The bottom line of an existing Note has been indented using the icon.
Then when I press [Enter] to add a new line and begin adding that line's text, it is also indented.
No problem. I'll just click the icon that reduces indentation.
No joy. Every attempt to dis-indent (new word?) the latest line fails.

If there is an invisible character that causes indentation, I can't delete it.

Is there a way to achieve the desired result within Logos?

Can you provide a screen shot I can try and duplicate?

I have tried and cannot duplicate the problem you describe

Thanks for replying, Fred. It does not surprise me that the (rare) behavior is not duplicatable.

When I place the cursor at the end of the last line shown above and press [Enter] to get a new line, The cursor moves under the "R" on the next line. If I click the [Increase Indent] icon, the cursor jumps to the right as expected, but if I click the [Decrease Indent] icon, the cursor does not move left to the original left margin.

If I type a new line above the first one, then copy and paste it below the last line, the new text is now indented to match the "Romans" line.

I'm sorry that I cannot give you steps to reproduce this behavior. It happens rarely.

[Just now]

When I highlighted ALL the text and clicked the [Clear Formatting] icon, All the text shown above jumped to the original left margin. Then re-indenting just the desired lines fixed everything.

So It looks like the [Remove Formatting] works differently, on highlighted text.
Unlike [Indent], where you only need to click somewhere on a paragraph before clicking that icon.

Does this sound reasonable?

Sorry Jack, I cannot duplicate the problem.

I duplicated your note sample as presented; hit return at the end of the last line to create a new line. The new line is positioned under the R in Romans as expected. I can increase the indentation using the tool bar, and can also decrease the indentation. 

I am not sure why it is not working for you

I am running the latest Beta on Mojave.
