I was wondering how I can change the spacing in my lists when I start my list off with a theorem environment. An example of this is that I have my list using the enumitem package with my code:

\begin{enumerate}[label=(\alph*)]
\item
     \begin{scrapwork}
     ...
     \end{scrapwork}
     \begin{proof}
     ...
     \end{proof}
\end{enumerate}

Which outputs with my theorem environment (scrapwork) starting on the line after where my item label is.

What I would have liked to happen is for Scrapwork and Proof to be aligned while placing scrapwork on the same line as my item label.

Thank you.

EDIT: MWE

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{amsmath,amsthm,enumitem}
\theoremstyle{remark}
\newtheorem*{scrapwork}{Scrapwork}

\begin{document}

\begin{enumerate}[label=(\alph*)]
\item
\begin{scrapwork}
wordshere
\end{scrapwork}
\end{enumerate}


\end{document}

Will tex.stackexchange.com/a/73747/11232 be useful? –  Harish Kumar Oct 6 '12 at 22:46
    
Welcome to TeX.sx! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. A MWE begins with \documentclass{} and ends with \end{document} and shows precisely where the error is... –  kan Oct 6 '12 at 22:47
    
@HarishKumar It is actually the opposite of that. I am trying to embed the theorem environment in a list instead of a list in the theorem environment. Also I updated the post with a MWE. –  BenM Oct 6 '12 at 23:02
    
@Dvorac You probably want \swapnumbers from the amsthm packages: so you declare scrapwork as a numbered theorem and the number will precede "Scrapwork". –  egreg Oct 6 '12 at 23:30
    
I agree with @Dvorac: this is not a duplicate, so I voted for reopening. –  egreg Oct 7 '12 at 10:12

You can take shelter inside a minipage.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{amsmath,amsthm,enumitem}
\theoremstyle{remark}
\newtheorem*{scrapwork}{Scrapwork}
\usepackage{linegoal}
\begin{document}

\begin{enumerate}[label=(\alph*)]
\item
\begin{minipage}[t]{\linegoal}
\begin{scrapwork}
wordshere
\end{scrapwork}
\end{minipage}
\end{enumerate}


\end{document}

If it's really the same, I'd prefer this question to be closed as duplicate instead of answered. –  lockstep Oct 6 '12 at 23:18
    
So it was the same. Should be closed, sorry. –  BenM Oct 6 '12 at 23:19
