I want to have bullet points in front of the two items in the blue annotation. I tried it with easy list, but it didn't work. Is there a way to use bullet points in annotations?


    \usepackage[a4paper, text={16.5cm, 25.2cm}, centering]{geometry}


    \begin{tikzpicture}[mindmap, grow cyclic,
     every node/.style=concept, concept color=lime!80, level 1/.append   style={level distance=5cm, sibling angle=120}, level 2/.append style={level distance=3 cm, sibling angle=60}, every annotation/.style={concept color=blue!20, text width={}, align=left}]

        child{node{Erziehen und Beraten}}
        child{node{Lehren und Lernen}}
child[level distance=6cm]{node{Französisch}
    child{node (n2) {Fach\-didaktik}}
    \node [annotation, right] at (n2.east) {Französich unterrichten lernen \\ Wie gestaltet man Unterricht?} 


With easy list I tried it like that

    \node [annotation, right] at (n2.east) {\begin{easylist}[itemize]
    & Französisch unterrichten lernen
    & Wie gestaltet man Unterricht?

Thank you :)


  • Have you tried hardcoding as a text your bullet via (fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/2022/index.htm). Another suggestion could be to use a \minipage environment at your annotiation.

1 Answer 1


I solved it with

    \node [annotation, right] at (n2.east) {$\bullet$ Französich unterrichten lernen \\
    $\bullet$ Wie gestaltet man Unterricht?};

enter image description here

wit \textbullet instead of $\bullet$ for the first bullet point mindmap

  • Nice, this is what I have suggested. However, I am not entirely sure if the bullet is correctly centered with the text right next to it. You can try using \textbullet (without using the math-markup $ signs).

  • @Matsmath the first bullet point is with \textbullet , it is more centered, but it is very small... I don't know if i's possible to put a picture in an comment.... It doesn't bothers me too much, that the bullet points with math-markup $ signs is not correctly centered, and I like the big bullet points more... I think I'll leave it like that. Thank you for your help :D

  • @Matsmath I can't. It says I have to wait two days until I can accept my own answer
