# Custom enumerate margin

I would like to use the enumerate environment in such a way that all the text in the listed items is fully aligned to the left, in such a way that labels are aligned to the left, and aligned to the text in the the second line. I do not manage to find the right combination of optional parameters: if I align the text to the left by using leftmargin=0pt the labels appear inside the left margin (which I want to be left blank).

Thanks!

• Welcome to TeX SX! This the key wide=0pt of enumitem. – Bernard Aug 28 '18 at 15:31

You can use the \usepackage{enumitem}to add many options to the three environments of list.

If you want a fully-left aligned list, you can use the options :

\documentclass[article]

\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{enumerate}[wide]
\item \lipsum[1]
\end{enumerate}


And if you don't want any indent on the item you can also use the options : labelindent=0pt allows you to change the label indent.

You can find more information about the enumitem package here.
