How to change the space between the itemize "items" in LaTeX so that I can continue to use the "itemize" and "item" tag without needing to redefine any new tags?

Maybe this question could be retagged from {biblatex} to {itemize}? Or is there a connection I don't see? – meep.meep Mar 1 '11 at 8:41

Welcome to tex.sx! A suggestion: Change your username to something more telling than "user3906". – lockstep Mar 1 '11 at 10:17

\itemsep is the length you'll want to change.

As an example:

\begin{itemize}
  \setlength\itemsep{1em}
  \item one
  \item two
  \item three
\end{itemize}

You use it like this: \begin{itemize} \itemsep0em \item one \item two \item three \end{itemize} – meep.meep Mar 1 '11 at 8:42

Or, you change it with \setlength or \addtolength. – PaulRein Mar 1 '11 at 8:44

Don't do that. Just use the enumitem package as described in the answer this question is a duplicate of. – TH. Mar 1 '11 at 10:42

How would I use \setlength to affect whole document? – 71GA Sep 11 '15 at 17:19
