Different Marginparwidth

It is also possible to change the margins without a list environment.


Paragraph Margins

Left margin

    \par
    \begingroup
    \leftskip2.5cm
    [ ...the text ... ]
    \endgroup
    \par
Left AND right margin
    start with
  • \begin{center}
    \begin{minpage}{}
    ... the text ...
    \end{minipage}
    \end{center}

    another solution is to define your own environment in latex preamble
    \newenvironment{myQuote}[2]%
                   {\begin{list}{}{\leftmargin#1\rightmargin#2}\item{}}%
                   {\end{list}}
    in your text than
  • \begin{myQuote}{3cm}{5cm}
  • the text ... bla bla bla ... the text
  • \end{myQuote}
    or with any other values for left and right margin.
Right margin
    same as above with \begin{myQuote}{0cm}{5cm}
    or with any other value for right margin.


It is also possible to set the margins without a list environment. Download
