Hello alessandro,

The reason for my use of indentation is the following: I'm working on a
book text with many citation. The citation are indented left and right,
30-300 words. The text has also introductions for a section, set bold,
indented left only, 30-120 words. Images will be sprinkled over the
pages to make it lively/appealing (and hopefully more understandable).

All text is in one frame to make it manageable, including chapter- and
section-titles. At the moment I add extra empty frames under the images
to control the text flow. If someone has a better idea than using
indentation and empty images to get the text in place, please let me know.

If there is a good reason to let the indentation follow frame-outlines,
please leave it that way. If not, you may consider a change.
