# How can I align the itemize with its title?

I want to align the list of items with its title, all start from the left margin of the page. For decreasing the space between the items, I have used "compactitem" package. But the result is like this:

Name list

• item 1
• item 2
• item 3

But I want the bullets align with title "Name list" (i,e with no indent). I used \noindent for each item but it doesn't change. How can I do it?

• Use the wide option of the enumitem package. No \noindent required. – Bernard Jul 4 '14 at 9:42

This is a solution using the enumitem package instead of paralist. Its wide option is made for that:

\documentclass[12pt, a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\usepackage{enumitem}

Here’s a compact itemize environment with bullets aligned with the left margin:

\noindent
\begin{itemize}[wide, nosep, labelindent = 0pt, topsep = 1ex]
\item[\textbf{Name list}]
\item A first item
\item A second item
\item Another item
\end{itemize}
