AsciiDoc also used the [literal] style for inordinately formatted blocks of text. Maybe something like #+UNFORMATTED_TEXT could be an OrgMode property which handles this. Or maybe OrgMOde already has something to handle free-floating text and I just missed it?

I tried something like this:

U n res train                      ed text
and while this did admittedly came somewhat closer to what I desire by exporting the escaped characters and new lines as being a little smaller than those which were typed normally. This, however, still wasn't a full free text formatting.

Hello Org-Mode community,

I am rather new to Org-mode itself and have still a lot to read about in the official manual, but I cannot seem to find a method for specifying document specific behaviour in Org-Mode.

For example, if I want all line breaks to be exported exactly with the same indentation as I have for them in my specific document, there seems to be no way to do this.

Sure, I can use \\ to create a new line break, and that works great, but if I indent my text differently, 


                                                                           a straircase

this indentation will not be preserved as such upon PDF export.

Now, I found that AsciiDoc solved this somewhat by allowing the user to insert 

                   format                       your   text o d d l y

at the beginning of a particular section within a document, and if this is inserted, then everything would be rendered as it is seen on screen upon export as well.
Granted, I am not suggesting that this preservation should be Org-Mode's default behaviour, not at all. I want only certain portions of my book to be formatted in this odd way, the rest should be perfectly precisely aligned, as is the case at this very time.

Thank you for your time and considerations towards this proposal.
