# How can I shift an {itemize} list to the right?

I am making an {itemize} list whose labels are so wide that they stick into the left margin:

\begin{itemize}
\item[(MPT1)]...
\item[(MPT2)]...
\item[(MPT3)]...
\end{itemize}


How can I shift the entire list to the right to prevent this from happening?

-

\usepackage{enumitem}
\setitemize{fullwidth}


For enumitem package v3.0 and later, use

\usepackage{enumitem}
\setitemize{wide}

-

Okay, I decided to load the enumitem package and use

\begin{enumerate}[labelindent=\parindent,leftmargin=*,label=(MPT\arabic*)]
\item ...
\item ...
\end{enumerate}

This doesn't really deserve an answer, does it? Also, if @Leo's answer was of any help, you should accept his response which is probably the best way to thank him for the interest and time spent on your question. –  chl Feb 10 '11 at 18:50
@chl: I do agree with your second sentence. But I find it quite OK to post stuff like this as an answer to one's own question. –  Hendrik Vogt Feb 12 '11 at 15:43
@Hendrik Ok, I just find that it would have been more courteous to also cite the responder that gave the right clue. –  chl Feb 12 '11 at 17:38
@chl: I agree 100%. –  Hendrik Vogt Feb 12 '11 at 17:53
The best option in my opinion would be to edit your example either into Leo's answer or your question. –  Pureferret Feb 12 '12 at 16:44
