# Bullets without itemize ignoring spacing

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

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}% http://ctan.org/pkg/enumitem
\begin{document}
\begin{itemize}
\item banana
\item mango
\item Meg Ryan
\end{itemize}
\end{document}


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

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
Steven Segal \textbullet is  \textbullet a \textbullet really \textbullet bad shot!
\end{itemize}
\end{document}

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

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.
• aha secret space is actually \- Well done me. – Ghoul Fool Jan 5 '14 at 14:29
