How can I put space after Itemmmmmmm: etc. I want to write

First Itemmmmmmm:     Value
Second Itemmmm:       Value     
third Itemmmmmmmmm:   Value

Currently, I'm getting

   \documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{enumitem}
%\setlist{itemize}{leftmargin=4em,labelsep=2em}  % global adjustment

\begin{document}
  \begin{itemize}[noitemsep,topsep=0pt,parsep=0pt,partopsep=0pt]
 \item First Itemmmmmmm:  Value
 \item Second Itemmmm: Value
 \item third Itemmmmmmmmm: Value
  \end{itemize}


\end{document}

enter image description here

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}

\noindent\hspace{5cm}X

\begin{itemize}[noitemsep,topsep=0pt,parsep=0pt,partopsep=0pt,labelwidth=5cm,align=left,itemindent=5cm]
      \item[First Itemttttttttt]:  Value
    \item[Second Itemtt]: Value
  \end{itemize}
\end{document}

  • +1 for recommending a competing package. ;-) – egreg Sep 6 '13 at 13:02

Use the optional argument to \item to replace the bullet symbol with your text.

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}
  \begin{itemize}[noitemsep,topsep=0pt,parsep=0pt,partopsep=0pt]
      \item[First Itemttttttttt:]  Value
    \item[Second Itemtt:] Value
  \end{itemize}
\end{document}

  • Thank you but I wanted First Itemttttttttt: Value Second Itemtt : Value – user31177 Sep 6 '13 at 9:42
  • @user31177 if I understand you correctly, you want to force a space in there - is that right? – Chris H Sep 6 '13 at 9:46
  • @user31177 --- you might be better off with a tabular environment in that case. – Ian Thompson Sep 6 '13 at 9:48

Would using a table be an option?

\begin{tabular}{lcl}
  First Itemtttttttttt & : & Value \\
  Second Itemtt & : & Value
\end{tabular}

Math mode could also help you, though it is a rather crude solution.

\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{align*}
  & First Itemtttttttttt & : & Value \\
  & Second Item & : & Value
\end{align*}

If you just want some empty space, you could try:

\begin{itemize}
\item[Itemtttttt:] Value
\item[Itemtt\quad :] Value
\end{itemize}
You can always replace the \quad with other spacing commands (\,, \:, \;) to get an amount of space that suits you, but you'll never get perfect alignment by padding in a proportional font.

If you want alignment, Ian Thompson's suggestion of a tabular environment is probably what you want
