this just uses local settings so can (will) go wrong if the next paragraph starts in a local group as things won't get restored properly. That's fixable but this shows the basic idea... \documentclass{article} \usepackage{marginnote} \let\zzeverypar\everypar \newtoks\everypar \zzeverypar{\the\everypar} \newenvironment{myenv}{% \ifvmode ...

Here is an example of using parshape: Code: \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \parshape=13 0pt 0.4\textwidth 0pt 0.4\textwidth 0pt 0.4\textwidth 0pt 0.4\textwidth 0pt 0.4\textwidth 0pt 0.4\textwidth 0.6\textwidth 0.35\textwidth 0.6\textwidth 0.35\textwidth 0.6\textwidth 0.35\textwidth 0.6\textwidth 0.35\textwidth 0.6\textwidth 0.35\textwidth ...

Not really pure latex markup but.... \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \setbox0\vbox{\hsize=3cm\raggedright 1 The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. 2 The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. 3 The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. 4 The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. 5 The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. 6 The ...

Add \medskip (or \bigskip), that's all. This a a sentence about something. I continue with another sentence. With this sentence I conclude an idea, and a new paragraph is needed. I start another short paragraph here, but I did not leave a blank line between both paragraphs, because they talk about the same general idea. With this sentence I end that ...

To indent the first paragraph after every section unit, follow the instructions in No indent in the first paragraph in a section? That is, load the indentfirst package as part of your preamble. For a specific 5-space indentation, also add \settowidth{\parindent}{~~~~~} to the preamble. This adjust the width of \parindent - the measure by which paragraphs ...

This is obtained by setting nonzero \parskip, e.g. \parskip10pt. Please keep in mind that such paragraphs should not be indented (you should set \parindent0pt), because mixing these two is considered a bad style.

\documentclass{article} \usepackage{enumitem,kantlipsum} \begin{document} \begin{enumerate}[label=\arabic*., listparindent=1.5em] \item \kant[1-2] \item \kant[3-4] \end{enumerate} \end{document} If you want the first paragraph of an item indented also, you need something like this but will need to play around, probably, to polish it. ...

Just to supplement @cfr, I usually use this general configuration \usepackage{enumitem} \setlist{ listparindent=\parindent, parsep=0pt, } To have paragraphs indented as in the normal doc, and to remove space between paragraphs in lists.

Use the \edlabel + \xxref (§9 of handbook) \documentclass{article} \usepackage{eledmac} \begin{document} \beginnumbering \pstart \edlabel{Queritur}Queritur utrum metaphysica sit scientia una. \pend \pstart \edtext{Et videtur quod non\edlabel{non}.}{\xxref{Queritur}{non}\lemma{queritur \dots{} non}\Afootnote{om. \emph{A}}} \pend \endnumbering ...

Here's one possibility. I stuck with your columns approach. I can use multiple columns environments, one for each needed row (here, I show 2 such rows). Within a single "columns", I make each column of the same width and add gaps between them by way of \hspaces as well as a blank column. \documentclass[compress,final]{beamer} \usetheme{Antibes} ...

Just quit enumerate at the right place and use enumitem's [resume] option: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage{enumitem} \begin{document} \begin{enumerate} \item \lipsum*[1] \end{enumerate} \lipsum*[2] \begin{enumerate}[resume] \item \lipsum*[3] \end{enumerate} \end{document} If you want no indentation, either don't leave a blank ...
