My aim was to make horizontal lists and followed this question(See the answer from @SDrolet): How to make horizontal lists?

And now I have the following (UPDATE)

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage{tasks}
\usepackage{amssymb}

\begin{document}

\begin{tasks}[counter-format={(tsk[r])}, label-align=left, label-offset={10mm}, label-width={10mm}, label-format={\bfseries}](2)
    \task Robotics
    \task Remote Sensing
    \task Bio-medical Applications
    \task Military Applications
    \task Equipment Monitoring      and Diagnostics
    \task Transportation Systems
\end{tasks}

\end{document}

Which produces the result(see:-item: Equipment Monitoring and Diagnostics which is not intended properly):

enter image description here

I would like to inden the item (V) as follows:

 (V) Equipment Monitoring
     and Diagnostics

How to make the proper indentation in this case?

  • Can you make a minimal working example (MWE)? – samcarter is at topanswers.xyz Apr 20 '18 at 13:47

    With \documentclass{article} and using package tasks I couldn't reproduce your problem. You should probably play with label-offset and label-width. Though if you post a MWE, a compilable code showing your problem, you can get more help – bmv Apr 20 '18 at 13:55

    Not everyone know where talks come from. You are much much more likely to get help if you provide a minimal but full example that others can just copy and test as is. Then it is also a lot easier for others to pinpoint the problem and provide suggestions. As your question sits now, users trying to help have to provide 2/3 of a document you test it. – daleif Apr 20 '18 at 13:56

    @JeJo It would be easier to help you, if we could reproduce the problem and don't have to guess which packages you might or might not use. – samcarter is at topanswers.xyz Apr 20 '18 at 13:57

    @daleif I have updated the code with packages. Sorry for not including it before. – JeJo Apr 20 '18 at 14:02

Without the change to label-offset the text lines are aligned:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage{tasks}



\begin{document}

\begin{tasks}[
counter-format={(tsk[r])}, 
label-align=left, 
label-width=1.9em,
label-format={\bfseries}
](2)
    \task Robotics
    \task Remote Sensing
    \task Bio-medical Applications
    \task Military Applications
    \task Equipment Monitoring \par and Diagnostics
    \task Transportation Systems
\end{tasks}

\end{document}

Here are two csolutions:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\usepackage{tasks}
\usepackage{ragged2e} 

\begin{document}

\begin{tasks}[counter-format={(tsk[r])}, label-align=left, label-offset={10mm}, label-width={10mm}, label-format={\bfseries}](2)
    \task Robotics
    \task Remote Sensing
    \task Bio-medical Applications
    \task Military Applications
    \task \parbox[t]{4cm}{\RaggedRight Equipment Monitoring and Diagnostics}
    \task Transportation Systems
\end{tasks}

\begin{tasks}[counter-format={(tsk[r])}, label-align=left, label-width={10mm}, label-format={\bfseries}, item-indent =20mm ](2)
    \task Robotics
    \task Remote Sensing
    \task Bio-medical Applications
    \task Military Applications
    \task Equipment Monitoring and Diagnostics
    \task Transportation Systems
\end{tasks}

\end{document}
