# Italics in the enumerate environment

I want to use italics in the enumerate environment. I want to have the following output:

(a)  Text1
(b)  Text2
(c)  Text3

I am using:

\begin{enumerate}[(a)] \end{enumerate}


How do I change this to get the desired results?

Since you seem to be using the enumerate package, you can just add \itshape to your enumeration:

\begin{enumerate}[\itshape(a)]

Great, thanks alot! – Chris May 2 '12 at 15:00

Based on your code fragment I guess you are using the package enumerate or paralist. However I recommend the package enumitem.

By using the package enumitem you can use:

\begin{enumerate}[label=(alph*),font=\itshape]


If you want to set it as default you can use:

\setlist[enumerate,1]{label=(alph*),font=\itshape}


and than you can type:

\begin{enumerate}


without any specifications.
