# [Tex/LaTex] Centered text, aligned left

horizontal alignment

This is probably a rather trivial question, but I don't see an obvious way on how to solve it. I want to center a piece of text, but i want to have the centered text be aligned left.

So I would like:

\begin{center}
line1
line2
line3
\end{center}


but where line1, line2 and line3 are aligned left, but still are centered.

You could use a tabular which aligns the text to the left and is itself centered in the text. This could look like this:

\documentclass{scrreprt}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
\lipsum[1]
\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{l}
This is line 1 with some text. \\
This is line 2 with a slightly different text \\
Line 3 is completely different and also a bit longer. \\
\end{tabular}
\end{center}
\end{document}


The output looks like this:
