One way would be along the lines of your second suggestion, to use the
lineLaidOut() signal to increase the indent for something like the first
five lines of your text.


There's an example of this in the Messages app. When you have a draft
message shown on the main screen, the first line of the message is
shifted slightly to the right to accommodate a little pencil icon. The
code for this is around line 150 of the file
/usr/share/jolla-messages/pages/groups/GroupDelegate.qml in case the
example is helpful.
