How can you indent (CellMargin) Printout Environment styles?



I am trying to create my own stylesheet for homework and projects, and I've been able to figure out how to edit the Working environment styles, but not specifically the Printout ones. I like the optimization automatically done by Mathematica to make work fit better (shrinking spaces and text size), but I am unable to edit the CellMargins in Printout mode so they indent as I want them to. So, while in the Working environment, things indent, but in Printout, none of my headings are indented.

Here's a photo of my stylesheet so far:Custom Stylesheet so far

As a side note, the Input and Output fields don't follow font specifications, but I'm not too worried about that.

Thanks for your help in advance!

It seems that your private definitions are only set for a general style, that is:

Cell[StyleData["Title"], options...]

And if parent stylesheets provide environment specific options they will take a precedence.

It is the case, click on the top cell link to the parent stylesheet and check styles for e.g. Title, it contains, among others,

Cell[StyleData["Title", "Printout"],
 CellMargins->{{2, 2}, {3, 32}}]

which will be used, so if you want to be sure your styles apply to the printout environment, you need to specify that explicitly.
