I have a document with a few long-named sections, which break at two lines, like this:

enter image description here

To meet some standards I need to change indentation of these titles (after \linebreak) at the level of normal text:

How can I do this? I searched for a few hours on Google and here and find nothing.

Update I use eskdx package for document and its class eskdtext. Sections are default for this class (no redefenitions).

  • Which document class are you using? Are you using some redefinition of the sectional unit headings? Please add this information to your question. Commented Jun 12, 2013 at 12:54

You can do it with titlesec; the spacing parameters in \titlespacing are the same as those defined by the extarticle class.


% without this we get an error

% store the value of \parindent

 {0pt}% space at the left
 {3.5ex plus 1ex minus .2ex}% space before
 {2.3ex plus 2ex}% space after

\usepackage{lipsum} % just for this example

\section{Some long title which is broken into two lines}

  • Thank you, @egreg. I already pass a document, but now I know how to do it.
