Some times I need to enclose a list of questions in a minipage to put a picture on the right. When the minipage starts with a list there is an indent problem, when there is somme text before it works fine. How to avoid this problem.

The third instance is the one I want to avoid: I want it looks like the first.

\hspace{20pt} Some text before the first question.

How make it work without some text before the first question.

\begin{ListExos}
\item \hspace{-20pt}%
\begin{minipage}[t]{\linewidth-4cm}
\raggedrigth% ne pas commencer par une liste directement
\hspace{20pt}\begin{compactenum}
\item bla
\item bla
\end{compactenum}
\end{minipage}
\end{ListExos}


\verb+\setlength\itemindent{-20pt}+ doesn't for several lines

\bigskip

\begin{ListExos}
\item \begin{minipage}[t]{5cm}
\raggedright% ne pas commencer par une liste directement

\begin{compactenum}

\item Reproduire une figure du même type que celle ci-contre.

\setlength\itemindent{-20pt}

\item Contruire deux points $B$ et $C$ tels que C soit inscrit dans le triangle $ABC$.

Proposer plusieurs solutions.
\end{compactenum}
\end{minipage}
\end{ListExos}

  • It is not clear. Of the three instances in the diagram at the top of your question, which of the 3 are "good" and which are "bad"? – Steven B. Segletes Apr 14 '16 at 15:04

    @StevenB.Segletes The third instance is the one I want to avoid. – Tarass Apr 14 '16 at 15:14
  • Please note that the list spacings are different in minipage environments – user31729 Apr 14 '16 at 15:30
  • @ChristianHupfer I don't understand. – Tarass Apr 14 '16 at 15:49
  • is the indentation on the lines after the first in the multi-line example what you want? do the boxed numbers ever increase to more than one digit, and if so, does the width of the box change? – barbara beeton Apr 14 '16 at 16:28

There are a number of things I would do differently, but here is a possible work around for your last environment:

\begin{ListExos}
  \item %\hspace{-20pt}%
    \begin{minipage}[t]{\linewidth-4cm}
      %\hspace{20pt}%  
      \raggedright% ne pas commencer par une liste directement
      \begin{compactenum}%%
        \item bla
        \setlength\itemindent{-20pt}
        \item bla
      \end{compactenum}
    \end{minipage}
\end{ListExos}

Part of your problem is using the \hspace{20pt}. You're creating a box which will cause the list environment to add vertical space. Instead, what I've done is reset the \itemindent after the item in your list.

  • Doesn't work for several lines case. See my edit. – Tarass Apr 14 '16 at 15:46

Put the item in the minipage solves the problem.
