# Increasing left margin in itemize environment of beamer class

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.

\documentclass{beamer}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}

\begin{itemize}
\item abc
\end{itemize}

\begingroup
\begin{itemize}
\item abc
\end{itemize}
\endgroup

\begin{itemize}
\item abc
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}

\end{document}


• I guess I could always when a new beamer question appears hold my breath until your answer pops up and would survive it. ;-) (+1) – user121799 Nov 7 '18 at 22:16
• Ah. I would like to do this for just one enumeration, although the document has many others in it. – Colin McLarty Nov 7 '18 at 22:17
• @marmot That's exactly what I do for new tikz questions until your answer appears :) – user36296 Nov 7 '18 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 – user36296 Nov 7 '18 at 22:18
