# Enumerate going to left side (out of page writing place) after adding package

I am having problems with enumerate, using the following code:

\begin{enumerate}
\item[\textbf{Class A:}] High quality clean P-waves;
\item[\textbf{Class B:}] Complete noise and absent P-waves. This included P-waves with \textit{no resemblance} to normal P-wave morphology, either due to motion artefacts, severe baseline wander, muscular activation interference, or simply by the absence of a P-wave;
\item[\textbf{Class C:}] Unreliable, noise-distorted P-waves. This included P-waves that had \textit{some resemblance} to normal P-wave morphology.
\end{enumerate}


At the beginning this worked fine, and the enumerate was aligned with the remaining text, as I wanted:

However, after adding \usepackage{enumitem} to the preamble (I need it for a table), the enumerate items go to the left:

This only happens to \item's where I adjust the bullet point. In numered items, for instance, nothing changed.

Anyone can help me?

• Could you post a full compilable code? B.t.w., your image shows no bullet. – Bernard Sep 13 '18 at 17:37
• Given that I am using my college's template, I can't, my apologies. In the example I showed, I changed the bullet into text (class A, class B, etc). In cases where I use real bullets or numbers, everything is okay – Take2 Sep 13 '18 at 17:43
• Anyway, there are no bullets in an enumerate environment. I must say that completing your code, the item labels flow into the margin, whether enumitem is loaded or not. So there's probably something in the preamble of your template. Which document class does it use? – Bernard Sep 13 '18 at 17:47

i would use description list:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}

%---------------- show page layout. don't use in a real document!
\usepackage{showframe}
\renewcommand\ShowFrameLinethickness{0.15pt}
\renewcommand*\ShowFrameColor{\color{red}}
%---------------------------------------------------------------%

\begin{document}
\begin{description}
\item[Class A:] High quality clean P-waves;
\item[Class B:] Complete noise and absent P-waves. This included P-waves with \textit{no resemblance} to normal P-wave morphology, either due to motion artefacts, severe baseline wander, muscular activation interference, or simply by the absence of a P-wave;
\item[Class C:] Unreliable, noise-distorted P-waves. This included P-waves that had \textit{some resemblance} to normal P-wave morphology.
\end{description}
\end{document}
\end{document}


which gives:

(red lines indicate text border)

Try this:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{calc}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}

\noindent and P-wave quality was manually annotated and double-checked. Following the tool’s methodology, P-waves were classified into three distinct classes (Figure 4.1):
\begin{enumerate}[label=Class \Alph*: , font=\bfseries, wide=0pt, leftmargin=\widthof{\textbf{Class B:\hspace*{\labelsep}}}%
]
\item High quality clean P-waves;
\item Complete noise and absent P-waves. This included P-waves with \textit{no resemblance} to normal P-wave morphology, either due to motion artefacts, severe baseline wander, muscular activation interference, or simply by the absence of a P-wave;
\item Unreliable, noise-distorted P-waves. This included P-waves that had \textit{some resemblance} to normal P-wave morphology.
\end{enumerate}

\end{document}
