# Itemize Bullets Don't Show Up [duplicate]

As the title says, I don't get pointy triangle bullet lists.

\begin{itemize}
\item {\color{black}{no bullet point}}
\item here neither

I don't understand why, it used to work before in other presentations and I haven't really touched anything (I probably did, but nothing I'm aware of).

• Simple answer: Do not load enumitem! – TeXnician Jun 29 '18 at 17:17
• @TeXnician But I need it for multiple reasons. Any way to get them with enumitem? – Narusan Jun 29 '18 at 17:20
• But it will mess up beamer code, because the two are incompatible with each other. – TeXnician Jun 29 '18 at 17:21
• @TeXnician Guess I'm having an XY Problem. My workaround was to use enumitem... – Narusan Jun 29 '18 at 17:24
• @Narusan If your tex distribution is reasonable up-to-date, you don't need etoolbox – user36296 Jun 29 '18 at 17:25

The solution to your problem is not to load enumitem, because it's incompatible with beamer (see here and if you really want to risk it here).

• inputenc with utf8 is no longer needed (April 2018's LaTeX format defaults to it)
• you do not need to load etoolbox with beamer (it's loaded by default)
• instead of your grouping around the \color use \textcolor, which even uses the grouped text you already have as argument

Code:

\documentclass{beamer}

\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage{svg}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{chains, positioning, shapes.symbols}

% THEME AND COLOR SETUP
\usetheme{CambridgeUS}
\usecolortheme[RGB={205,0,0}]{structure}
\setbeamertemplate{items}[triangle]
\setbeamertemplate{sections/subsections in toc}[square]

\frametitle{Blabla}
\begin{itemize}
\item \textcolor{black}{no bullet point}
\item here neither
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}


If you really can't do without use the following (from here), but it will not remove all incompatibilities:

\usepackage{enumitem}
\setitemize{label=\usebeamerfont*{itemize item}%
\usebeamercolor[fg]{itemize item}
\usebeamertemplate{itemize item}}
