I have a strange behavior of the indentation in \itemize environment if I use the Springer's svmono document class. Look the following example:

\begin{itemize}
\item[(E1)]She can access to an arbitrarily large number of ciphertexts, in other words she intercepts all the communications between Alice and Bob.
\item[(E2)]She always knows the encrypting and decrypting functions.
\end{itemize}

The result is: enter image description here

Why I have this problem?

Edit: I use the following packages

\usepackage{subfiles}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} 
\usepackage[bottom]{footmisc}
\usepackage{microtype}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{relsize}
\usepackage{courier}
\usepackage{mathrsfs} 
\usepackage{amssymb} 
\usepackage[all,cmtip]{xy}
\usepackage{faktor}
\usepackage[linesnumbered,commentsnumbered]{algorithm2e}
\usepackage[colorlinks={true},linkcolor={blue},citecolor={blue}]{hyperref}
\usepackage{geometry}
  • Why do you have this problem? Mainly because the svmono class in badly written, unfortunately. – egreg May 24 '14 at 11:15

I don't have this problem. Do you use any other commands that could affect the itemizing?

Maybe you can try this:

 \documentclass{svmono}

 \usepackage{enumitem}

 \begin{document}

 \begin{enumerate}[label=(E\arabic*),start=1]
 \item She can access to an arbitrarily large number of ciphertexts, in other words she intercepts all the communications between Alice and Bob.
 \item She always knows the encrypting and decrypting functions.
 \end{enumerate}

 \end{document}

  • I tried to compile with your packages (pdflatex, xelatex and lualatex) and both examples work as they should do. – SLx64 May 24 '14 at 11:15
  • Maybe I have an older version of svmono, where can I download the newest version? – Dubious May 24 '14 at 11:17

  • \itemize doesn't work! It's a mystery. However many thanks for the help. – Dubious May 24 '14 at 12:13
