My question is like Changing left margin in itemize environment of beamer class except that I want to increase the left margin by maybe 15ex, while that question sought to suppress the left margin. I will add that one answer to that question noted that it requires to know how to work with the LaTeX list environment. I do not know how.

The left margin of itemizations is controlled by \leftmargini. To only modify it for a single itemization, you can place both inside a a group.




    \item abc

    \item abc

    \item abc

  • I guess I could always when a new beamer question appears hold my breath until your answer pops up and would survive it. ;-) (+1)

  • Ah. I would like to do this for just one enumeration, although the document has many others in it. Commented Nov 7, 2018 at 22:17
  • @marmot That's exactly what I do for new tikz questions until your answer appears :) Commented Nov 7, 2018 at 22:17
  • @ColinMcLarty If you only want it for a single enumeration, use it inside a group with this enumeration, see my edited answer Commented Nov 7, 2018 at 22:18
