Can you please copy the contents of your .tex file here: `M-x
org-export-disptatch l l'?

Best regards,

hi Andrés,

I'll explain what happens. There really isn't an alignment issue. TeX by
default applies a first line indent to paragraphs. It also defaults to
applying English typographical conventions, as is the case in your
document, where the first paragraph following a section is not indented.
This is what is happening :):

section
no indent -------------
indent       ----------
indent       ----------

Another more general typographical convention is that when paragraphs
are separated by a vertical space, they do not need to indent the first
line, as it is a redundant mark. Besides, you are making paragraph
separation by direct format (\bigskip). I usually recommend not applying
direct format in LaTeX, or applying it as little as possible. To disable
the first line indentation and make the paragraphs have a space between
them, it is enough that you add this:

#+LaTeX_Header: \parindent=0em\parskip=\bigskipamount

That way, you're giving the first line indentation a global value of
zero and a paragraph spacing value equivalent to \bigskip, and you don't
need to put a \bigsip every time you start a paragraph.

On the other hand, this code at the end does not give you an error?

\makebox[1.5in]{\hrulefill} \hspace {1.0in} \\
& John Doe \\
& ID: XXXXXXXX\\

best regards, 

Juan Manuel

That is good to know.

[...]

It worked for most part of the document. But I Think I need the double
of space before the signature.

Right. It is giving me an error I have NOT noticed it because the pdf is
being generated.

Your document is probably compiled on export with the
`-intercaction=nonstopmode' option, and thus does not break the
compilation with an error. In any case, I don't really understand why
you export that part literally to LaTeX and why you add the & at
beginning of line:

& John Doe\\
& ID: XXXXXXXX

Those characters are usually reserved for tabular
environments, so LaTeX returns an error. If you want to use an &
literally in LaTeX you must escape it as \&. But if you write the
anpersand directly in Org Mode you don't need to escape it, since Org
takes care of it when it exports the document.

Also, in the signature you could also avoid direct formatting. You can
define a simple environment, with an extra space before it, if you need
to add that space. This is a very elementary example, based on your
format. Then you can use in Org a special block, with the name of the
environment:

#+LaTeX_Header: \newenvironment{signature}{\bigskip\raggedright\makebox[1.5in]{\hrulefill}\par}{\par}

#+begin_signature
John Doe

ID: XXXXXXXX
#+end_signature

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
