How can we align the text in enumerate (or itemize) with the item number?
Also, how to add a parenthesis after the item number and make the two in bold and italic?

An example of what I am looking for:

1) AAAA: bbbb
2) DDDD: eeee

  • Have a look into the enumitem package manual, but personally, I don't like this alignment -- it does not improve readability – user31729 Jan 21 '17 at 21:46
  • I think that in my case it does, since some items contain more than 10 lines with lots of formulas (so I need more space per line..). – din Jan 21 '17 at 21:50

Using itemindent from enumitem you could do something along the lines of this...


\item \sample{AAAA} bbbb\\cccc
\item \sample{DDDD} eeee\\ffff


enter image description here


With enumitem, you have to use:

\item ...
\end {enumerate}

for a single enumerate, or, for each enumerate (1st level),


in your preamble.
