I am using itemize in minipage and observe unexpected spacing among items.

\documentclass[11pt,table,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[framemethod=TikZ]{mdframed}
\usepackage[top=.5cm, bottom=2cm, left=1cm, right=1cm]{geometry}
\usepackage{wrapfig}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\begin{document}

This is first line.\newline
 \begin{minipage}{\textwidth}\begin{itemize}[topsep=0ex]
 \item First Item
 \item Second Item
 \item Third Item
 \end{itemize}\end{minipage}  
 \newline This is second line.
 \end{document}

enter image description here

How can I fix this problem?

This is very similar to How to keep a constant \baselineskip when using minipages (or \parboxes)? (possibly a duplicate). –  Werner Mar 15 '13 at 6:14
    
Is there a specific reason why you're using a minipage here? –  egreg Mar 15 '13 at 10:00

I am not sure about this, but maybe the following is what you are looking for.

Code

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}

\noindent This is first line.\\[\baselineskip]
\begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
\begin{itemize}
\item First Item
\item Second Item
\item Third Item
\end{itemize}
\end{minipage}
\\[\baselineskip] This is second line.

\end{document}

Output

Update

Code

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\setlength\parindent{0pt}

\begin{document}

This is first line.\\[0.5\baselineskip]
\begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
\begin{itemize}
\item First Item
\item Second Item
\item Third Item
\end{itemize}
\end{minipage}
\\[0.5\baselineskip] This is second line.

\end{document}

Output

In my example, there is one newline before intemize. I want to reduce the space equal to 1 newline using topsep. But using baselineskip, space seems to be more. –  user15662 Mar 15 '13 at 6:45
    
"using baselineskip, space seems to be more": Then use, say, \\[0.5\baselineskip]. (I don't know if 0.5 is the correct factor; it's just a guess.) –  Svend Tveskæg Mar 15 '13 at 6:52
    
my report is auto report so i cannot add \noindent. How can i avoid using this. –  user15662 Mar 15 '13 at 7:11
    
You can just delete it and then you are not using it... (I don't understand the question.) –  Svend Tveskæg Mar 15 '13 at 7:25
    
If i use no indent, text before itemize get indented. Is there any way to not to indent without using \noindent –  user15662 Mar 15 '13 at 7:30
