Are you trying to align Text to the left or align different objects to the left?

 

If it's text: you can just add 8px to the left indent in the paragraph settings.

If it's objects you can align them to the left and then nudge them over 8px with the arrow keys. You can set the nudge distance in the preferences in the Tools section.

For objects you could use the grid (View > Grid)
In the "Grid and Axis Manager" uncheck 'Use Automatic grid" and set the spacing to 8px.
Set "Snapping" and "Move By Whole pixels" on and be sure "'snap to grid" is checked.

Any object. Like a padding for Align. The Width is 128, Space 32: Align to right: 96
I can go to Transform to calculate -32 but i ask if is another option to save the space to not calculate every time.

Try selecting your objects, then click on "Alignment" button on the Tool Bar, then uncheck "Auto Distribute" for "Align Horizontal" (or vertical) then set any value the slide field... Should have the job done.
