I try adding these indentations, but when I hit tab, it just jumps to the publish button instead of indenting

Hi Brian, these seem to clash with the studio's own keyboard navigation. I'm checking if we have any other way to get them to work.

Much appreciated

Just got word back from our product design team. Unfortunately, it seems like we don't support them at the moment. Noting this down as a feature request.

Hi Brian. What follows doesn’t solve your request for tab indentations, but if you only need to indent once, you could add something like this to your schema styles:

  title: "Indented",
  value: "indented",
  blockEditor: {
    render: ({ children}) => <p style={{ marginLeft: "2em" }}>{children}</p>
Then on your front end (assuming you want the indents to render out), you could add to your serializer. Something like:

import BlockContent from '@sanity/block-content-to-react';


const serializers = {
  types: {
    block: (props) => {
      const { style = 'normal' } = props.node;
      if (style === 'indented') return <p style={{ marginLeft: "2em" }}>{props.children}</p>;
      return BlockContent.defaultSerializers.types.block(props);

Ahhh that can work, thanks!
