I have such a structure in my org note

**** pstree
     * ~ $ pstree -aps 26955
systemd,1 splash
  └─systemd,1947 --user
      └─gnome-terminal-,2710
          └─bash,1775
              └─emacs,25135
                  └─bash,26955
~ $ pstree --arguments --show-pids --show-parents 26955
systemd,1 splash
  └─systemd,1947 --user
      └─gnome-terminal-,2710
          └─bash,1775
              └─emacs,25135
                  └─bash,26955

enter image description here

I want to indent the codes region forwards but get (mark the region and press tab)

**** pstree
     * ~ $ pstree -aps 26955
     systemd,1 splash
     └─systemd,1947 --user
     └─gnome-terminal-,2710
     └─bash,1775
     └─emacs,25135
     └─bash,26955
     ~ $ pstree --arguments --show-pids --show-parents 26955
     systemd,1 splash
     └─systemd,1947 --user
     └─gnome-terminal-,2710
     └─bash,1775
     └─emacs,25135
     └─bash,26955

but I want the whole block keep its structure.

Is it possible to get it done?

    You might want to take a look at org-indent-mode, which will indent the display of org-mode files in Emacs. Your structure isn't a tree to org-mode, so it won't treat it as such. If you want org-indent-mode to be enabled by default, you can add (setq org-startup-indented t) to your init file. – DoMiNeLa10 Jan 16 '19 at 14:07

org-mode does not recognize your structure but you could indent it manually.

To indent a region with N space characters:

Select the region to indent and use C-u N indent-code-rigidly

for example: C-u 8 indent-code-rigidly for 8 spaces.

To indent a region with tabs:

Select from the beginning of first line to the beginning of the last one and use C-x r t C-i RET
