# enumitem itemize environment shifts text into margin, or overlaps other text

I am in the process of transitioning from using the older {paralist} package to the {enumitem} package and this question on Suggestions for transitioning from paralist to enumitem package suggested to use the align=left option. However, this is results in text overlapping. If I remove the setting, then the default {enumitem} package results in text being overwritten. Not sure how to fix this...

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{paralist}
\usepackage[shortlabels]{enumitem}
%\setlist{align=left}

\usepackage{geometry}
\geometry{showframe}

\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{document}

\begin{itemize}[\textbf{Given:}]
\item $f(x) = \sqrt{x}$

$g(x) = \sqrt[3]{1 - x}$
\end{itemize}

\end{document}


This produces correct results with {parlist} package. Using the defaults of {enumitem}, shifts text into margin (with TeXLive2012 as of Oct 27, 2012):

and with the align=left, the text overlaps.

Or is there a better way for me to achieve the results that {paralist} produces.

It's a bug, to be fixed very soon. Anyway, when the list is properly setup (as Gonzalo shows below), this shouldn't be a problem. –  Javier Bezos Jun 27 '11 at 9:41

You can use leftmargin=*:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[shortlabels]{enumitem}
\setlist{leftmargin=*}
\usepackage{geometry}
\geometry{showframe}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{document}

\begin{itemize}[\textbf{Given:}]
\item $f(x) = \sqrt{x}$

$g(x) = \sqrt[3]{1 - x}$
\end{itemize}

\end{document}
