# Align text to left

How to align text to left with a bullet using itemize?

• You should really improve your question quality. Typically one should include a minimal working example (MWE) that replicates your current setup. – Werner Sep 17 '15 at 19:08

Something like this, perhaps?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[showframe, nomarginpar]{geometry}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

Some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text.
\begin{itemize}[noitemsep, wide = 0pt]
\item First
\item Second
\end{itemize}

Some more text some more text some more text some more text some more text some more text some more text some more text.
\begin{itemize}[nosep, wide = 0pt]
\item Third
\item Fourth
\end{itemize}

\end{document}


• It includes a frame as well, a frame is not required. how to remove that – user87834 Sep 17 '15 at 17:12
• @user87834: That's only the showframe option of the geometry package, which is quite helpful to show the layout. Remove showframe and the frame on the page(s) will vanish. – user31729 Sep 17 '15 at 18:43
• Already done with that the format I am using shifts the text to the right Please let me know any changes in the following \setlength{\topmargin}{-1in} \setlength{\textheight}{9.8in} \setlength{\headsep}{0.001cm} \setlength{\headheight}{12pt} so as to shift text to the left – user87834 Sep 17 '15 at 18:46
• For the frame, sory, I should have explained: it is the option showframe of geometry, that I used to prove the bullets are indeed at the left margin. Remove that option. For the shifting to the right, this comes probably the the geometry package loading, which seems to apply more sensible margins than the default. You have two solutions: either you remove the geometry package (I used it only for the ‘showframe’ option), or you define your layout directly with geometry (it's much easier than the traditional way). However if you have a template, it might interfere. – Bernard Sep 17 '15 at 19:20
• @Bernard: What, if you load enumitem before geometry? I didn't try it... – user31729 Sep 18 '15 at 6:11
