# How I can remove this horizontal space on environments-lists?

When I make a list, either with "enumerate" or "itemize" I get the text as follows:

But I would like to eliminate or reduce the horizontal distance that it occupies:

And get something like this:

An example of the code is

 \documentclass[10pt, letterpaper]{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\setlength{\parindent}{0pt}
\begin{document}
Some text here
\begin{enumerate}
\item a
\item b
\item c
\end{enumerate}
Some more text
\end{document}

• Perhaps Setting the indention of unordered lists, Stefan's answer applies to both ordered and unordered list. Oct 23, 2016 at 16:10
• the indentation for enumerate is usually established by the document class you are using, but there are other methods. since we don't know what you are doing now, we can't give a reliable answer. please provide a small. compilable example that demonstrates what how you obtained the result you show at the top of your question.

\documentclass[10pt, letterpaper]{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\setlength{\parindent}{0pt}

\begin{document}

Some text here
\begin{enumerate}[wide=0pt]
\item a
\item b
\item c
\end{enumerate}
Some more text

\end{document}


This results in the left margin of the list being the same as the text left margin. If you want the list leftmargin coincide with the beginning of the item, add the option leftmargin=*.

Set leftmargin=* and specify your widest element (if it is more than 9). Below I've also aligned the enumeration to the left, but that is not necessary.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{enumitem,lipsum}
\setlength{\parindent}{0pt}% Just for this example

\begin{document}

Some text here
\begin{enumerate}[align=left,leftmargin=*,widest={10}]
\item a
\item b
\item c
\setcounter{enumi}{9}
\item j \lipsum[1]
\end{enumerate}
Some more text

\end{document}
