# Show bullets in parbix [duplicate]

I am trying to add bullets to each item. However, the itemize isnt showing the bullets. Could someone tell me what the issu is?

Also how do I get the item to automatically fill the box and wrap?

• No problem here (with bullets showing). Can you include a picture of the output? Are you getting any warnings? Note that you should avoid using the minimal document class. – Werner Apr 19 '18 at 0:18
• The bullets do also not show on my TeXLive 2017 distribution, but if I follow @Werner and change the document class to, say, article, they do. But I am actually more concerned about how you use tabular and so on here. None of this is necessary. – user121799 Apr 19 '18 at 2:36
• The problem is exactly in using the minimal class that does no definition to \labelitemi (besides not defining several other things). – egreg Apr 19 '18 at 8:57

You do not need any of the tabular, parbox and so on, I think. And if you choose a different document class, the bullets will show.
