I want to place some code inside of an enumerate whose labels are encircled letters. I'm following this question to get the encircled letter labels, but I'm having a spacing issue:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{listings}
\usepackage{courier}

\lstset{basicstyle=\footnotesize\tt}

\begin{document}

\newcommand*\circlabel[1]{%
    \begin{tikzpicture}[baseline=(C.base)]
        \node[draw,circle,inner sep=1pt,minimum size=4ex](C) {#1};
    \end{tikzpicture}}

\begin{enumerate}[label=\protect\circlabel{$\Alph*$}]
    \item
        \begin{lstlisting}[language=Java,gobble=12]
            int someCode = 0;
            int onMultipleLines = 1;
            int likeThis = 2;
        \end{lstlisting}
\end{enumerate}

\end{document}

How do I get rid of the space between the first and second lines of code?

One option would be to use the overlay option for the tikzpicure, so it doesn't take space and adjust labelsep:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{listings}
\usepackage{courier}

\lstset{basicstyle=\footnotesize\tt}

\begin{document}

\newcommand*\circlabel[1]{%
    \begin{tikzpicture}[baseline=(C.base),overlay]
        \node[draw,circle,inner sep=1pt,minimum size=4ex](C) {#1};
    \end{tikzpicture}}

\begin{enumerate}[label=\protect\circlabel{$\Alph*$},labelsep=15pt]
    \item
        \begin{lstlisting}[language=Java,gobble=12]
            int someCode = 0;
            int onMultipleLines = 1;
            int likeThis = 2;
        \end{lstlisting}
\end{enumerate}

\end{document}

  • Thanks! I also added leftmargin=50pt to prevent the labels from spilling into the left page margin (since labelsep pushes the labels to the left, rather than pushing the content to the right). – Jeff Jan 16 '15 at 18:51
