Hi Yves, > What approach would I take? Is this something that can be done with > tabs?
The tutorial in CSTR 54, logical page `- 32 -', defines the `lp' labelled paragraph macro that uses tabs. https://troff.org/54.pdf If you're starting troff, that slim document is well worthy of repeated careful study. > a combination of indents? Ted's pointed out the combination of indents. Another way that's sometimes seen is to move left with `\h' to out-dent the item's `bullet'. $ cat list.tr .na .nh .pl 10 .ll 32 .nr i 0 1 .af i i Before. .sp .in 8 .ds l "\n+i. \" \h'-\w'\*l'u'\*lFirst. .br .ds l "\n+i. \" \h'-\w'\*l'u'\*lSecond. A lot longer list item this time. .br .ds l "\n+i. \" \h'-\w'\*l'u'\*lThird. .in .sp After. $ $ nroff list.tr Before. i. First. ii. Second. A lot longer list item this time. iii. Third. After. $ The tedious repetition is well suited to being your own macro definition you have in your prologue. -- Cheers, Ralph. https://plus.google.com/+RalphCorderoy
