Given the enumitem + beamer incompatibility discussed in detail here, How do I adjust the indent and vertical separation of the items in an enumerate environment?

As alluded to in a relevant post, an application might be to fit the enumeration more snugly into a tabular environment (via minipage).


You can adjust the indention by modifying \leftmargini. For nested levels the same can be done for \leftmarginii etc.



        normal spacing
            \item test
            \item test


            \item test
            \item test

  • Thanks! This is very helpful. What has me really stumped is how to modify the indent. I would like to make `normal spacing' and the numbers associated with each of the items horizontally aligned (zero indent) in your example above. – John Chris Aug 16 '16 at 13:21
  • @JohnChris My bad. See the edit. – user36296 Aug 16 '16 at 13:29
  • So this works well locally within a frame, but how could this be done globally? Also, does the value 0.5cm have an associated variable name? Ideally, I would like to set some variable to zero to make the enumerate environment and any preceding text horizontally aligned. – John Chris Aug 16 '16 at 14:30
