From the Basic List...
I have not set my scanner back up since the fire/water destroying
our mobile home, but if I remember correctly my OMNI software
(free version) that came with the scanner, it did the formatting
with the indentation. I do not know when I will find the time to
set up my scanner and maybe not for a few more months while we
are waiting for a new house to be built. (I do not know how it
is down there when buying a house - especially one ready to fall
off the bottom of the earth - haha - but here it is actually
cheaper to buy a house than to rent.)
