# Adding space at the beginning of a line

How can I add some blank characters at the beginning of a line? The point is to align text with the relevant text above, e. g. instead of:

(a) text

text

I would like to have:

(a) text

.....text

(Without the dots of course)

• Search for enumerate and check if that’s what you want . – nidhin Nov 18 '18 at 15:48
