I'm doing the following thing

\documentclass[leqno]{amsart}
\begin{document}
Example.
\begin{itemize}
\item Such and so
\item the following holds
   \begin{align}
       x - 2
   \end{align}
       always.
\item whatever else
\end{itemize}
\end{document}

Since I number my equations on the left, what I don't like about this is that the equation number is closer to the margin than the itemize bullets, while I would like it to be the other way around. Is there a way to do that? Maybe I should create a box or minipage with tikz (or something similar)?

Please always post complete documents which reproduce the problem.

With the standard classes the bullets are to the left of the number:

enter image description here

\documentclass[leqno]{article}

\usepackage{amsmath}
\begin{document}


aaa

\begin{itemize}
\item Such and so
\item the following holds
   \begin{align}
       x - 2
   \end{align}
       always.
\item whatever else
\end{itemize}

\end{document}

amsclass has an apparently explicit design to produce

Which you can over-rule by

\documentclass[leqno]{amsart}
\def\fullwidthdisplay{}%\displayindent\z@ \displaywidth\columnwidth}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\begin{document}


aaa

\begin{itemize}
\item Such and so
\item the following holds
   \begin{align}
       x - 2
   \end{align}
       always.
\item whatever else
\end{itemize}

\end{document}
  • Hi, thanks. I must admit I haven't checked with the standard class, I just didn't think it'd make a difference. I am using amsart. – John Salvatierrez Jun 17 '13 at 11:14
  • @carmelodevisu It always makes a difference, and even when it doesn't it saves the person trying to help from having to type \documentclass... and guess the needed packages. – David Carlisle Jun 17 '13 at 11:17

    thanks a lot, it worked! could you say a few words about the line you comment out? What is the bit from \displayindent onwards? – John Salvatierrez Jun 17 '13 at 11:58

    oh I see, so the second bit you commented out is just what would have gone inside \fulldisplaywidth{}, correct? – John Salvatierrez Jun 17 '13 at 12:42

    @carmelodevisu yes I copied that line from the source of amsart then commented out almost all of it. – David Carlisle Jun 17 '13 at 12:45
