I have multiple paragraphs in a chapter. I want to indent all but the first lines each. Is there any way to achieve this?

I tried \begin{hangparas}{1em}{1} but this will indent all but the first lines in the section (see capture).

I know that a proper bibliography would solve this. Unfortunately, this is not an option anymore as my transcribing the references from Excel to LaTex/BibTeX would blow my time frame.

Thanks in advance. Capture

  • You could use a negative value for \parindent and combine it with changepage's adjustwidth environment. – leandriis Jul 21 '18 at 11:45
  • You can try something like \hangindent=2em. – nox Jul 21 '18 at 11:55

You can use the hangingparas environment – however this environement can't contain any sectioning command, so you may have to insert it multiple times:




\section{A First Section}

  • Thanks. It worked but I had to insert it before every item as I was working with a lot of sections. But the file looks great now - worth the hustle. I appreciate your input! – Till Jul 21 '18 at 15:17
