As a new user of Scribus 1.3.3 (and an experienced user of 
PageMaker), I want to apply styles to my text.

When I use "Edit the text with the story editor", and within that 
choose Edit/Edit styles..., I get what seems to be the right window 
for modifying the style. I find that I can change the font size and 
type, and the leading, but not the spacing before/after paragraphs, 
nor can I indent the first line of a paragraph.

Specifically, spacing before the P does nothing, and spacing after 
the P seems to work.

To indent the first line, I have set the indentation for the first 
line of the P to 0.3 in, and indentation of the P to 0. The lines in 
the corresponding style all start at the left margin.

How do I set up a style to have spacing before, but not after, each 
paragraph, and have the first line of each paragraph indented?
