Justifying indented paragraphs works fine when you have autoindent switched on. Use the -i option on the command line, or toggle the feature on with M-I before hitting ^J.

If this does not work for you because your indented paragraph is more complex, then please attach a file with an example, because Savannah will reformat any text that you type or paste into its input box.

Would it be possible/advisable to have ^J (justify) justify indented paragraphs? This would be useful when editing text like this:

This is a paragraph that spans many lines, and it would be useful
to be able to justify it when adding words in the middle o it.
Otherwise, lines can wrap, and reordering all the lines is

PS: I hope that this is indeed the right place to submit feature requests…
