What is the intended use of indenting a step in the main flow of a use case?

I understand the indention of steps in an Extension, but when would you ever neet to indent a step in the main use case?  I just want to be sure if we use that feature (increase indent) that we are using it correctly and for its intended purpose.

I just saw your example of a main use case and it appears it is to be used when multiple steps are done before moving on but that set of steps could be done in any order.  They would still each need to be done to validate the use case.  Please just let me know if that isn't correct.  Thanks!

Indenting is intended and mainly used to help with readability, as shown below.

And, if you check the Show Testing Procedure checkbox, you can enter in Testing Procedure / Inputs and Expected Results for each of the indented steps. Cool, hey?!
