# Putting spaces in posts?

This may be a stupid question, but is there a way to put spacing at the start of a line. Sim ilar to what the 'Tab' key would do in a word processor.
Just to make the equations I'm writing clearer.

Not in the body of the message, but may try to experiment with [СODE][/СODE] tags.

However, equations look best in LaTeX. Instead of

F=
k(q1)(q2)
------------
r^2

you will get

$$F = \frac {k q_1 q_2} {r^2}$$

It won't get better with spaces.

You can indent any line of text using the "increase indent" https://www.physicsforums.com/Nexus/editor/indent.png [Broken] button. You'll need to edit in Advanced Mode, just click the "Go Advanced" button to get there.

Here is an example of indented text.​

This line is indented twice.​
