I was going to ask about

\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?

  • Is there a way to copy and paste so it does what Cristrian did automatically?

    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

  • When I copied my code from ShareLatex and pasted it into the code block here, it was jumbled. I don't know why.

  • @TegLouis you have first to paste the code and then to select all of it and press the code button : {} You can make it an answer and paste test it there.

    as this is asking about the site mechanics I have voted to move it to meta.tex.stackexchange, feel free of course to post a new question here asking about the actual question. Mar 3, 2018 at 22:21
