About

{itemize} is about the itemize list environment. If you use this tag, add the more general {lists} tag.

The environment is used to create bulleted lists; if you use this tag, add the more general tag. For numbered lists, one uses the environment, and for descriptive lists, one uses the environment.

Typically, itemize is used like this:

\begin{itemize}
  \item The first item
  \item The second item
  \item (and so on...)
\end{itemize}

There are a few packages for customizing the appearance of bulleted lists.

  1. The package (documentation) provides an interface to adjust the vertical and horizontal spacing of list items, change the bullet shape, and define custom list environments.
  2. The package (documentation) provides commands for using lists compactly within paragraphs.
