# Create a bold enumerated list with parenthesized lower case letters

I can create an enumerated list with parenthesized lower case letters by using the enumitem package (with the [shortlabels] option) in the preamble and then using \begin{enumerate}[(a)]. I can also create a bold enumerated list by using the enumitem package and then using \begin{enumerate}[label=\textbf{\arabic*}].

I guess I should be able to exchange \arabic* in the last example to something that gives me paranthesized lower case letters, but I don't know what that command would be.

You can use label=(\textbf{\alph*}) to get lower case letters, and label=(\textbf{\Alph*}) for upper case letters:

## Code:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}

\begin{enumerate}[label=(\textbf{\alph*})]
\item one
\item two
\end{enumerate}

\begin{enumerate}[label=(\textbf{\Alph*})]
\item one
\item two
\end{enumerate}
\end{document}

Thanks! Is there any resource where I can look up these different commands? –  Speldosa Jun 21 '12 at 20:39
