# Putting an enumerate list into quotation marks

I have a question: How can one put quotation marks around a list, i.e. like this:

"1. item one

...

n. item n"


I need to cite a list in my document.

(I will need to use German quotation marks, but I believe having this solved for classic ones, the rest should be easy)

• Welcome to the site! you could, for example, wrap a tcolorbox around it; see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/277777/…, for example :) Feb 3 '16 at 16:44
• Thanks for the prompt answer :). I might try that but it does not feel really science-y (and I believe it should, since I am writing a bachelor thesis). Initially, I was aiming for a look similar to this: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/226839/how-to-quote-a-list but without the quotations at the beginning of each item line. Feb 3 '16 at 16:54

You can do something like this.

\documentclass{scrartcl}
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage[autostyle]{csquotes}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{etoolbox}
\begin{document}

\newcommand\itemquote{\textooquote}
\robustify\itemquote

\begin{enumerate}[label=\itemquote\arabic*]
\item blub
\let\itemquote\relax %deactivate quote

\item blub\textcoquote
\end{enumerate}

\end{document}


• Thank you, does exactly what I had in mind. Also, out of interest, is there any difference between \textcoquote and \grqq? Feb 3 '16 at 19:13
