One Issue about RW, which is mainly caused by the flexibility RW provides, is the readability on articles.
If you have only Text-Snippets, everything is alright, but when I started to use more and more Labeled Texts and Tag Snippets, the readability of Articles decreased significant.

In my Opionen, the readability will be much increased if Labels and the corrosponding Text- Tag-entrys would be aligned vertically or move the Labels above the Entrys.

As you see in the attached Screenshot, Beauty is something else...

The Killerfeature would be to Choose per Article to view it "unaligned", "labels above" or "horizontal aligned".
I know this is not made easy, so I would be very grateful if the Style "Label above" will be added (in the "Preferences->Styles")

I hope the attached Images show what I mean.

I use labeled snippets a lot and would not want them changed. They are ideal for my use.

It would seem to me that putting the label above the snippet would lead to confusion with sections, which you could use for roughly the same purpose as labeled snippets if you want a label above a snippet.

I do agree that a uniform alignment option, per section perhaps, would be nice.

I also use them quite often. And that option would be very helpful.

The problem would go away or be good enough if they implemented it like this:

Tag: This is the text corresponding to the tag. 
It has no hanging indent. Thus there is no 
horizontal alignment problem. There could perhaps
be some preference to control formatting of
the tag.
The hanging indents are causing the problem.

+1 - I would like an ability to choose among all the above solutions (including the present) and the ability to set it per section, per topic and globally.
