How to reduce spaces between bullet points in itemize?

I am using itemize. I want to reduce the spacing between two lines(Two bullet points). How do I do that?

Like this.

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\begin{itemize}
\item The first
\item The second
\end{itemize}
\end{document}


With enumitem: add this to your preamble

\usepackage{enumitem}
\setlist[itemize]{noitemsep}


or

\setlist[itemize]{itemsep=some length}


If you want it only for a specific list, write in the body of the document:

\begin{itemize}[noitemsep]
\item
...
\end{itemize}

• enumitem is not require \addtolength\itemsep{-4mm} will suffice. So accepting the other answer. Thanks – Tessaracter Nov 16 '18 at 20:46
• Sure, but if you change the font size, you'll have to adapt \addtolength\itemsep}. – Bernard Nov 16 '18 at 20:51
