# Interrupted list formatting options [duplicate]

I have an odd list, interrupted by normal text introducing its last item:

\documentclass{memoir}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
\lipsum[1]
\begin{enumerate}[itemsep=-4pt]
\item My first item
\item My second item\\
Along with these should be mentioned:
\item My third item
\end{enumerate}
\end{document}


The text between item two and three, "Along with these...", is supposed to break out of the list and start at the left edge of the textblock. How do I push it to the left, if that's at all possible?

I already tried the following between item 2 and 3,

\end{enumerate}
\vspace{-2\baselineskip}
Along with these should be mentioned:
\vspace{-\baselineskip}
\begin{enumerate}[itemsep=-4pt]
\setcounter{enumi}{2}


but the inter line space was somewhat off.

Stop and resume the enumerate:

\documentclass{memoir}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
\lipsum[1]
\begin{enumerate}[itemsep=-4pt]
\item My first item
\item My second item
\end{enumerate}      %%<---------------------- stop here
Along with these should be mentioned:
\begin{enumerate}[resume]       %%<----------- resume
\item My third item
\end{enumerate}
\end{document}


If you want tight spacing:

\documentclass{memoir}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
\lipsum[1]
\begin{enumerate}[nosep]
\item My first item
\item My second item
\end{enumerate}
Along with these should be mentioned:
\begin{enumerate}[resume*]
\item My third item
\end{enumerate}
\end{document}


With spaces before and after enumerate:

\documentclass{memoir}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
\lipsum[1]
%\begin{enumerate}[nosep,before={\vspace{0.6\baselineskip}},after={\vspace{0.6\baselineskip}}] %% or shorter
\begin{enumerate}[noitemsep]
\item My first item
\item My second item
\end{enumerate}
Along with these should be mentioned:
\begin{enumerate}[resume*]
\item My third item
\end{enumerate}
Some text again
\end{document}


• Your second example looks about good, but the nosep option also gets rid of the vertical space before and after the enumeration. I need the tight spacing only between second item and the inserted line, and then again between that line and item 3. But in fact I should consider getting rid of the spaces before or after the list as well. – muk.li Apr 9 '15 at 14:39
• @muk.li See the newly added code at the end. It does what you need. :-) – user11232 Apr 9 '15 at 15:41
• You probably want noitemsep rather than nosep and adding vertical space before and below. – egreg Apr 9 '15 at 17:43
• @egreg Thanks. I have changed. May be I should get more sleep :-) – user11232 Apr 9 '15 at 22:53
