Move list of acronyms to the right

I'm using the acronym package and I want to move the list of acronyms a bit to the right. I have the list in an independent .tex file and the code I use is:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[printonlyused]{acronym}
\begin{document}
\section{Description}
\acs{MLS}, \acl{TES}, \acf{HiRDLS}.
\section*{List of Acronyms}
\begin{acronym}
\acro{MLS}{Microwave Limb Sounder}
\acro{HiRDLS}{High-Resolution Dynamics Limb Sounder}
\acro{TES}{Tropospheric Emission Sounder}
\end{acronym}
\end{document}


I have played with \hbox and \hspace with no results. Anyone knows about it?

Edit: Now with a compilable example.

• Can you prepare a little compilable example showing the most important infos, i.e. your document class? – Johannes_B Dec 17 '13 at 18:18

Since it behaves like a list, you can modify the value of \itemindent.

Add the following lines to your preamble and adjust 0cm to fit your needs

\usepackage{etoolbox}

\makeatletter
\pretocmd{\AC@@acro}{\setlength{\itemindent}{0cm}}
\makeatother


MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[printonlyused]{acronym}

\usepackage{etoolbox}

\makeatletter
\pretocmd{\AC@@acro}{\setlength{\itemindent}{0cm}}
\makeatother

\begin{document}
\section{Description}
\acs{MLS}, \acl{TES}, \acf{HiRDLS}.
\section*{List of Acronyms}
\begin{acronym}
\acro{MLS}{Microwave Limb Sounder}
\acro{HiRDLS}{High-Resolution Dynamics Limb Sounder}
\acro{TES}{Tropospheric Emission Sounder}
\end{acronym}
\end{document}


Output:

• Thanks! I thought it was something easier playing with \hspace or similar. – tete Dec 17 '13 at 18:44
