aligning text in description env

Postby templateuser » Sun Mar 08, 2015 3:29 am

Hi,

I'm new to the 'forum' and struggling a bit with this (otherwise great) template.
I'd like to align the text in a description environment (make it block-like) but none of the options I found elsewhere seem to work.
Any ideas?

Thanks,
Marcel

Hi Marcel,

the description environment doesn't offer much alignment features. However, you could use an additional packages, such as enumitem or mdwlist, to extend description capabilities.

Besides that, you could switch to a tabular environment, which is great for positioning and aligning. Or combine description with \parbox (or minipage, but that's too much) or tabular.

I recommend tabular, where you can place the labels in each row in the first column.
