How to move a text more to the left in a frame in beamer? because It seems that when compiling the text make a space to the right by default and I have tried the \hspace but didn't work (it only worked to move the text to the right but not to the left). I have written



                             \item 1

                             \item 2


  • I'd have thought that \hspace (or \hspace*) with a negative length, before the text, would work. What did you try exactly, can you show a minimal example demonstrating what you have and what you tried to do? Jun 30, 2018 at 11:17
  • I have tried also \hspace with a negative length but nothing happened. I have written a usual slide nothing new example: \begin{frame} \begin{itemize} \item 1 \item 2 \end{itemize} \end{frame}

  • Please edit the question and include a complete example there, comments aren't really suited for a lot of code. At the beginning of a line you need \hspace*{<length>}, i.e. with an asterisk. Jun 30, 2018 at 11:28
  • @ Torbjørn T. okay

    are you looking for something like tex.stackexchange.com/a/435822/36296 ? If this is not what you are looking for, please make a compilable minimal working example (MWE) and some sketch how the desired output should look like. Jun 30, 2018 at 11:42
