# Copying and pasting ShareLatex into Tex StackExchange editor window [duplicate]

\begin{itemize}
\item[] $a$       \linebreak \tabto{1.5cm} Effective earth radius [km] calculated from (16).
\item[] $a_a$ \linebreak \tabto{1.5cm}  An adjusted effective earth radius [km] shown in Figure 8, from (104).
\end{itemize}


but copying and pasting makes it look nasty above. What should I do differently?

• Just mark the pasted code with the mouse and press either CTRL-K on the keyboard or click the {} - button in the editor of the question/answer with the mouse – user31729 Mar 3 '18 at 22:12
