# more margin before block

I have the following:

\documentclass{beamer}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{xcolor}

%\usepackage{colordef}     % local package?
%\usepackage{beamerdefs}   % local package?
%\usepackage{lvblisting}   % local package?

\begin{document}
\frame{
\frametitle{Test}
\begin{itemize}
\item mtest
\item test test test test

\begin{block}{Methods}
\item the variance/covariance
\item historical simulation
\item \fcolorbox{red}{white}{Monte Carlo simulation}
\end{block}
\end{itemize}    % missing line
}
\end{document}


The problem is that the block part has the wrong indentation, so it is too much on the left and not on the same line as the text before, how can I change this? I tried \hspace but it does not work.

Welcome to TeX.sx! This is a lot of code. In order to help people who'll help you, could you please remove everything from the code that's not related to your problem? This will turn your document into a so-called minimal working example (MWE), which people can copy and compile to reproduce your problem. Otherwise, your question might be in danger of being closed as too localized. –  doncherry Oct 26 '12 at 8:38
@doncherry ok, now it is ok. any answer? –  StudentMacor Oct 26 '12 at 8:55
@StudentMacor the example you have posted does not compile. colordef, beamerdefs and lvblisting look like custom packages. They may contain the definiton of block environment, which is needed. Also the itemize list does not have a end specified. –  mythealias Oct 26 '12 at 9:04
@StudentMacor My mistake block is defined by beamer (which I haven't used). Adding \end{itemize} just before the frame ends and removing custom packages, will make the example work. –  mythealias Oct 26 '12 at 9:15

Assuming you want the same indentation for block items than for those before the block: Use two separate itemize environments and put the second one inside the block environment.

\documentclass{beamer}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{xcolor}

\begin{document}
\frame{
\frametitle{Test}
\begin{itemize}
\item mtest
\item test test test test
\end{itemize}

\begin{block}{Methods}
\begin{itemize}
\item the variance/covariance
\item historical simulation
\item \fcolorbox{red}{white}{Monte Carlo simulation}
\end{itemize}
\end{block}
}
\end{document}
