i'd like to reduce the space between two rows in an mdframed environment.


                \item 1
                \item 2
                \item ...

I already tried, skipbelow, skipabove but none of them worked.

Thanks in advance

Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – Christian Hupfer Mar 21 '14 at 15:48
Not sure which rows are you trying to reduce the spacing between: between the title and the first row? Or instead, are you trying to reduce the horizontal space between the vertical columns from multicol? – Peter Grill Mar 21 '14 at 16:04

The space is due to \multicolsep:





\setlength\multicolsep{0pt} % <--- added; here it's a local setting


  \item some text that should go across three lines
        in order to show that they are set ragged right
  \item 2
  \item ...


Note that \RaggedRight can well go after \begin{enumerate}, avoiding the need of additional braces, which simplifies the input. Note also that \label must go after \caption.
