# LaTeX Indentation within Section and Subsection

1. Sep 25, 2009

I am very new to LaTeX (outside of PF). I am trying to write up a basic Template to use as a reference.

Most issues I have been able to find documentation for. However, I am haveing trouble finding this one.

I am using \documentclass{article} and cannot seem to get my lines to indent within a \section or \subsection

Any thoughts?

Hi there,

Have you tried with the \parindent command???

Cheers

you can define those:

\def\section{\@startsection {section}{1}{\z@}{-3.5ex plus -1ex minus
-.2ex}{2.3ex plus .2ex}{\bf }}
\def\subsection{\@startsection{subsection}{2}{\z@}{-3.25ex plus -1ex minus
-.2ex}{1.5ex plus .2ex}{\it }}
