# Creating Latex template for a given format: Problems with line spacing and list indentation

I am trying to write a Latex template for the format shown in following figure. In the figure only vertical spaces are given and 1 = 0.1 in. I have written a partial code and unable to complete it. I am trying to use vspace with Center heading but it is giving spacing of more than 0.2 inches. Also, the nested listed is not properly indented.

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
% Change font to Helvetica which is same as Arial.
\usepackage{helvet}
\renewcommand{\familydefault}{\sfdefault}

% Set margin of the paper. % Set top and bottom margins
\usepackage[a4paper,
left = 1.5in, right = 0.5in, top = 0.5in, bottom = 0.5in]{geometry}

% Define a new command
\newcommand{\CentreHeading}[1]{\begin{center} \begin{large}
\MakeUppercase{\textbf{#1}} \end{large} \end{center}} % Space of 2 units
below Centre Heading.
\newcommand{\SideHeading}[1]{\noindent\textbf{#1}} % Space of 2 units below
Side Heading.
\usepackage{titlecaps}
\newcommand{\ParaHeading}[1]{\titlecap{\textbf{#1}}}
\newcommand{\SubparaHeading}[1]{\titlecap{\textbf{#1}}}

% Define top level numbering.
\usepackage{enumitem}
\setlist[enumerate]{wide, topsep = 0mm, partopsep = 0mm, parsep = 0in,
itemsep = 0.16666in, labelindent = 0pt, leftmargin = 0in, labelsep = 0.5in}
\newenvironment{mylist} { \begin{enumerate} }{ \end{enumerate} }

\begin{document}
\CentreHeading{Something for centre heading}

\end{mylist}
\item This is the third line of first itemize list and should be c. Please ignore all the other text in this line. This is all garbage.

• (0) Welcome! (1) Is there no Sub-Sub-Paragraph Heading? (2) Are you the first who implements a LaTeX version of this requirements at your organization? – Dr. Manuel Kuehner Mar 2 '20 at 9:20
• @Dr.Manuel (0) Thank you. (1)There is no sub-sub paragraph heading yet. I think I can define it in case we need. (2) yes, I am the first one. – Ali Baig Mar 2 '20 at 9:23
• But how do you switch logically from sub-paragraph to sub-sub level? – Dr. Manuel Kuehner Mar 2 '20 at 9:34

%If you want a in place of 1.1, then replace it with %%\subsubsection*{a. Tex}. Here you do not need packages.

• It looks like the OP meant that TOC part.... Is your suggestion works for that? ... – MadyYuvi May 11 '20 at 15:08

The nonlinear Schrodinger equation is a most important equation governing many physics phenomena. It has thus been studied in many previous papers. The present authors adopt a somewhat new approach  by using two different averaged complex potentials.  I think that this approach is interesting, and that the present manuscript thus deserves to be published.

\subsection{Sub Paragraph Heading}% you can replace it
% put your text here.
However, above eq. (24) which describes the Gibbon potential I think that the readers would like to see a reference, as (24) is not familiar to most readers. In addition, I suggest that the flowing minor misprints are corrected:
\subsubsection{ Sub Sub paragraph heading} % you can replace it
% enter your text here
Thanks for the  comments.  Corrections suggested  are incorporated in the revised manuscript. We have also changed the title and additional text is added. There was a sign mistake in the potential which we have corrected. Regarding the Stenflo and Gibbons potentials, the exact references are given.  The page number 1735 is corrected to 1733.
\section*{(2) Paragraph heading}

We agree that many may not know the potential form therefore we have added exact location of references for these two potentials.

This is a simple document. I have added my text in it which you can delete it. You do not need additional coding. In the last I have added star for an example. Please test it.
