# Beamer Enumerate and Itemize

Is it possible to combine these environments? Now I have this code.

\begin{itemize}
\item a
\item b
\end{itemize}

What do you mean by combine? You can nest them. –  Sigur May 3 '13 at 22:48
Combine in what way? Please make a complete document that shows the problem. You can nest enumerate in itemize, or itemize in enumerate or do you mean some other combination? –  David Carlisle May 3 '13 at 22:48

@user29701, I suggest you to read the documentation of the enumerate package, which provides many ways to set up your lists. –  Sigur May 3 '13 at 22:58
@Sigur beamer does its own stuff with the standard lists, so packages like enumerate or enumitem won't preserve the beamer way of doing things. –  Gonzalo Medina May 4 '13 at 2:50

nesting? if yes, then:

\begin{itemize}
\item a
\item b
\begin{enumerate}
\item b 1
\item b 2
\item b 3
\end{enumerate}
\end{itemize}

I try that. Yes, nesting. –  user29701 May 3 '13 at 22:54
I'd better give you +1 as well for making the right guess:-) –  David Carlisle May 3 '13 at 23:01
@DavidCarlisle Thanks for +1. :-) –  mnemonic May 3 '13 at 23:05
That works ........... but I cannot vote up. Tnx –  user29701 May 3 '13 at 23:07

You can pass options to each \item:

\documentclass{beamer}

\begin{document}

\frame{
\begin{itemize}
\item[1.] a
\item b
\end{itemize}
}

\end{document}

cool. have never seen that :-) –  mnemonic May 3 '13 at 22:52
I did not mean that. –  user29701 May 3 '13 at 22:53
+1 for a reasonable guess at what the question meant:-) –  David Carlisle May 3 '13 at 22:54
@user29701: Can you be more specific then? –  Kevin C May 3 '13 at 22:54
@user29701 how can anyone know what you do mean from a single word "combine" ? Please edit the question. –  David Carlisle May 3 '13 at 22:55
