Re: changed indentation for quotations [solved]

2009-05-29 Thread Markus Büchele
Richard, thanks a lot! It worked very well. You're my favourite hecker! ;-) 

I adapted it to:

\renewenvironment{quote}
{\list{}{\setlength\leftmargin{0.7cm}}%
\item\relax}
{\endlist}

\renewenvironment{quotation}
{\list{}{\setlength\leftmargin{0.7cm}}%
\item\relax}
{\endlist}

Cheers and best wishes!

Markus

  Hi,
 
  is there a way to change indentation for quotes and quotations in the
  preamble of a document? I'd need left indentation 0.7cm, right
  indentation 0cm.
 
  All I found was changes inside the document, such as:
 
  \par
  \begingroup
  \leftskip=2cm % ggf. verstellen
  \noindent Langer Text
  \par

  Not a very encouraging option when you need to change about 1,000
  quotations.

 Exactly what to do depends upon your document class, but the short
 version is that you can just \renewenvironment the quote environment by
 copying it out of the class and changing it as you see fit. It's just a
 list environment. E.g., here are the ones from book.cls:

 \newenvironment{quotation}
 {\list{}{\listparindent 1.5em%
 \itemindent \listparindent
 \rightmargin \leftmargin
 \parsep \z@ \...@plus\p@}%
 \item\relax}
 {\endlist}
 \newenvironment{quote}
 {\list{}{\rightmargin\leftmargin}%
 \item\relax}
 {\endlist}

 You could try putting \setlength\leftmargin{2cm} in there, and adjust
 as need be, e.g.:
 \renewenvironment{quote}
 {\list{}{\setlength\leftmargin{2cm}\rightmargin\leftmargin}%
 \item\relax}
 {\endlist}
 Something like that should work.
