# Hang of List of schemes

I want to align the second line of long names in a list of schemes like in the second screenshot below.

Current situation:

I want it like this:

• Hi erkunt, welcome to TeX.sx. I've inserted the pictures into your question and also tried to edit the question to make it clearer what you're asking. I hope that's okay for you. It would be great if you could edit your question to include a minimal working example so people can see how you generate your indices. This will make it easier for others to help you. – Jake Sep 14 '11 at 7:09
• Let me add the following: it would be helpful if you provided information about the documentclass you're using (article, report, book, etc), the value of the \textwidth variable, how the "scheme" environment is defined (as a floating object, say), and how schemes are numbered (per section, per chapter). – Mico Sep 14 '11 at 8:04

I can manage this problem by using \hangindent.

my .def file was

\def\@myschemedottedtocline#1#2#3#4#5{%
\vskip \z@ \@plus.2\p@
{\leftskip #2\relax \rightskip \@tocrmarg \parfillskip -\rightskip
\parindent #2\relax\@afterindenttrue
\interlinepenalty\@M
\leavevmode
\@tempdima #3\relax
{Scheme #4}\nobreak
\leaders\hbox{$\m@th \mkern \@dotsep mu\hbox{.}\mkern \@dotsep mu$}\hfill
\nobreak
\hb@xt@\@pnumwidth{\hfil\normalfont \normalcolor #5}%
\par}%
}


I added \hangindent=3.5pc below \parindent #2\relax\@afterindenttrue and that solves my problem.

\def\@myschemedottedtocline#1#2#3#4#5{%
\vskip \z@ \@plus.2\p@
{\leftskip #2\relax \rightskip \@tocrmarg \parfillskip -\rightskip
\parindent #2\relax\@afterindenttrue
\hangindent=3.5pc
\interlinepenalty\@M
\leavevmode
\@tempdima #3\relax
\leaders\hbox{$\m@th \mkern \@dotsep mu\hbox{.}\mkern \@dotsep mu$}\hfill
