In the following example I am using \raggedleft which is supposed to align the text to the right. However it doesn't work.


enter image description here

What is my mistake?

    you finished \raggedleft with } before it was used (this is unrelated to qrcode) leave a blank line before } (or use \begin{flushleft}..\end{flushleft} Commented Jan 24, 2022 at 15:24

    because it's probably a duplicate but making a comment gives you help quicker than finding the necessary link to close Commented Jan 24, 2022 at 15:27

A paragraph is set according to the settings in scope at the end of the paragraph.

You have finished the scope of \raggedright at } without ending the paragraph so it has no effect other than setting \parindent to 0pt as the indent is consulted at the start.

Leave a blank line before } (or use \begin{flushleft}..\end{flushleft} (note this is unrelated to the qrcode).
