I'm trying to increase the vertical spacing in an itemize environment with the powerdot class. According to the powerdot documentation this is achieved by changing some parameters values in the \pdsetup{} command, I have tried but my code does not change anything:




\begin{slide}{title of the slide}  
\item  Hello 

\item Hello

Try \pdsetup before \begin{document}. – mythealias Sep 19 '12 at 10:44
@mythealias Damned ! That works ! Thanks ! – Stéphane Laurent Sep 19 '12 at 11:45
@mythealias Make that an answer, please. – lockstep Sep 24 '12 at 18:11
@lockstep I could not get powerdot to work on my install, so I was just guessing the answer based on other packages. – mythealias Sep 24 '12 at 18:51
@mythealias It was a good guess, though, and I'd upvote it. – lockstep Sep 24 '12 at 18:52

Try \pdsetup before \begin{document}.

you can also use it this way for local changes:

\item  Hello 

\item Hello

the first [] is for Powerdot options and a second [] for package enumitem
