Indent of only the first sentence of a paragraph

I want to indent the first sentece of every paragraph only, not the whole paragraph.
My text is justified over the whole width of the page.
I can use “tab” to make an indent of the first sentence, however, I find the space too large.
Is there any way I can make the size of the tab smaller?
You can make the indent smaller or larger with the Format – text – decrease indent, but that works only on the whole paragraph, not on only the tab or the first sentence.
(I’m working on a black/white text book).

I hope somebody knows.

best regards, Annemieke
