Putting spaces in posts?

  1. Sep 21, 2009 #1
    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


    you will get

    [tex]F = \frac {k q_1 q_2} {r^2}[/tex]

    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.​
