My document begins like this:

first line\newline
second line\newline
third line

First characters of the first and second lines are indented? Could somebody explain me why?

Actuallt there was some code between first and second line for placing background. Yeas it is indented cause the start of paragraph, which I avoided using \noindent.

  • Leave an empty line between two paragraphs to get the default spacing. To break the line without indentation, use first line\\second line.

    @Sigur \newline is equivalent to \\ but the OP claims the second line is indented. Nov 18 '13 at 23:52

In the code you show, only the first line will be indented, as the start of a paragraph:

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}

first line\newline
second line\newline
third line

\end{document}
