# vertical spacing for itemize environment with powerdot

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:

\documentclass[
size=12pt,
paper=screen,
mode=present,
display=slidesnotes,
nohandoutpagebreaks,
pauseslide,
fleqn
]{powerdot}

\begin{document}

\pdsetup{
itemize={labelsep=10cm,leftmargin=*,itemsep=10cm,topsep=10cm,parsep=10cm}
}

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

\item Hello
\end{itemize}
\end{slide}

\end{document}

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:

\begin{itemize}[][labelsep=1cm,leftmargin=*,itemsep=1cm,topsep=1cm,parsep=1cm]
\item  Hello

\item Hello
\end{itemize}


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