How would I bold just this item? Thank you.

\item $\neg f\to (\neg b\lor\neg m)$

    Welcome to TeX SX! Which type of list is it? – Bernard Sep 12 '17 at 15:23
  • @Bernard I don't think that matters: the math is not an argument to \item. – cgnieder Sep 12 '17 at 15:25

    @clemens: depends on whether it's the label of the contents which has to be boldened. It's not clear to me. – Bernard Sep 12 '17 at 15:36

If you want to bolden the contents of the item, the simplest is this:

\item \boldmath$\neg f\to (\neg b\lor\neg m)$\unboldmath

or, following egreg's suggestion:

\item {\boldmath$\neg f\to (\neg b\lor\neg m)$},
  • This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks! – Safder Aree Sep 12 '17 at 15:50
  • \item {\boldmath$...$} is better, IMO. – egreg Sep 12 '17 at 16:23
  • @egreg: What's the difference? I thought it was equivalent. – Bernard Sep 12 '17 at 16:36

    @Bernard Maybe not equivalent, if \boldmath was already in effect. It's conceptual, rather than specific for the case. Use grouping to limit a scope whenever possible. – egreg Sep 12 '17 at 16:46
  • OK. Initially, I chose what I posted (\bold ... \unbold) because it's too easy to forget closing a brace, and it's tough to find where it's messing at times. (wonderful slip (and metalepsis): ‘messing’ for ‘missing’!) – Bernard Sep 12 '17 at 17:02
