Easy question for those in the know :) I can produce a itemised list like this

\usepackage{enumitem}% http://ctan.org/pkg/enumitem
\item banana
\item mango
\item Meg Ryan

But when I use text bullets the space between the bullet and the text is ignored

Steven Segal \textbullet is  \textbullet a \textbullet really \textbullet bad shot!

    How are these two related? If you need itemize inline with your text, you can use paralist package which handles the spacing automaically. Jan 5, 2014 at 14:18

You have to insert a space after it, using

Steven Segal \textbullet\ is  \textbullet\ a \textbullet\ really \textbullet\ bad shot!

Also, you don't need the enumitem package for this neither for itemize environment.

    That simple. That's cool. I was worried it would be \secretspace or some command unknown to me. Thank you.
