^indent( [data] )^

Exports the data as a string (sequence of characters) for each ancestor of the currently exported note.


Exports a tab character for each ancestor of the currently exported note except root level, i.e. a tab is the default indent if no data parameter is supplied.

For web use, tabs are ignored for white space so consider using one or more " " space HTML entities as the data value.

This note is at Outline Depth 4 in its source TBX file, so ^indent(string)^ will emit the string value 3 times . Thus, if we use a hyphen as the indent's string value, you see:

----Text indented with ^indent(-)^

More examples:

     Text indented with ^indent( )^

Text indented with ^indent^ (i.e. a tab)

Note how in the HTML output the third example isn't visually indented as tabs aren't interpreted as white space mark-up in HTML. If you view the HTML source for the page, you'll see example #2 has output 4 " " non-breaking space HTML entities. For example #3, you'll see 4 tabs have been output; depending on the program viewing the source you may be able to 'see' these as tabs by moving the cursor through the source code with the arrow keys - you'll see it jump from tab to tab.

Root level notes are not indented.
