# Alignment of itemize/enumerate items in footnotes

In my document I am using the footmisc package (with \usepackage[splitrule,hang]) and the following appearance of my footnotes

\deffootnote[1cm]{1cm}{0cm}{\makebox[1cm][l]{\thefootnotemark}}


Now I have the following problem: I would like to use itemize and/or enumerate environments in footnotes. How do I achieve that the numbers and/or the bullet points are aligned with the beginning of the footnote text?

It should look like this:

    1    text text text
1. first item
2. second item
2    text text text
-  first item
-  second item


OK, Here's a MWE:

% !TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode
% !TEX TS-program = xelatex

\documentclass[]{scrbook}
\usepackage[left=1cm, right=1cm, top=1.5cm, bottom=2cm]{geometry}
\usepackage{polyglossia}

\usepackage[splitrule,hang]{footmisc}

\setdefaultlanguage[variant=american]{english}

\setmainfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Times New Roman}
\setsansfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Arial}
\setmonofont[Mapping=tex-text]{Courier New}

\setlength{\parindent}{0cm}
\setlength{\parskip}{0.25cm}
\newcommand{\einzug}{1cm}

\deffootnote[\einzug]{\einzug}{0cm}{\makebox[\einzug][l]{\thefootnotemark}}

\begin{document}
Here the first paragraph begins. Here is the first footnote\footnote{Lorem ipsum
color sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit.\begin{enumerate}
\item Ut purus elit, vestibulum ut, placerat ac, adipiscing vitae, felis.
\item Curabitur dictum gravida mauris.
\end{enumerate}}. Here the first paragraph ends.

Here the second paragraph begins. Here is the second footnote\footnote{Nulla
\item Donec felis erat, congue non, volutpat at, tincidunt tristique, libero.
\item Vivamus viverra fermentum felis.
\end{itemize}}. And here the second paragraph ends.

If you look closely at the footnotes you will see that the item texts are not aligned
with the main footnote text right before them. I would like to see the
following: The numbers in the enumerate environments and the bullet points in the
itemize environments should be exactly aligned with the main footnote text
right before them!
\end{document}

You can use enumitem package for this purpose.

\documentclass[]{scrbook}
\usepackage[left=1cm, right=1cm, top=1.5cm, bottom=2cm]{geometry}
\usepackage[splitrule,hang,marginal]{footmisc}
\usepackage{enumitem}
%------------------------------------------------------------
\setlength{\parindent}{0cm}
\setlength{\parskip}{0.25cm}
\newcommand{\einzug}{1cm}
\deffootnote[\einzug]{\einzug}{0cm}{\makebox[\einzug][l]{\thefootnotemark}}
%------------------------------------------------------------
\begin{document}
Here the first paragraph begins. Here is the first footnote\footnote{Lorem ipsum
color sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit.\begin{enumerate}[labelindent=1cm,leftmargin=*] %<--------------------------------------here
\item Ut purus elit, vestibulum ut, placerat ac, adipiscing vitae, felis.
\item Curabitur dictum gravida mauris.
\end{enumerate}}. Here the first paragraph ends.

Here the second paragraph begins. Here is the second footnote\footnote{Nulla
\item Donec felis erat, congue non, volutpat at, tincidunt tristique, libero.
\item Vivamus viverra fermentum felis.
\end{itemize}}. And here the second paragraph ends.

If you look closely at the footnotes you will see that the item texts are not aligned
with the main footnote text right before them. I would like to see the
following: The numbers in the enumerate environments and the bullet points in the
itemize environments should be exactly aligned with the main footnote text
right before them!
\end{document}
