Hanging Indent for numbered Paragraphs

Postby jblaster » Sat Sep 21, 2013 5:24 pm

The code I have is this.

  1. 1. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat \\

But as you can see in this output:

The part that says "mod" is not aligned with the first word, "Lorem." I would like all subsequent parts of the paragraph like the letter 'm' in "mod" to be directly under the letter 'L' in "Lorem" including any future numbered paragraphs (there will be some other stuff in between the paragraphs). How can I achieve this?

What about using an {enumerate} environment? Could be customized by enumitem.

Just for information to other users for awareness of possibly already existing solutions. The question has also been posted to {TeX} SX. Please read what our administrator thinks about that.
