The following code:


\chapter{Preguntas e respostas}
\item{}\textit{Non aparece a imaxe do fondo.}
Se construíches o KLettres.


Incomplete \iffalse; all text was ignored after line 11.

The code works if I replace enumitem with enumerate or galician with spanish. But enumitem is needed to have unboxed style for descriptions.

Is there any way to avoid this conflict?

    I don't think it's possible; galician.ldf heavily redefines the enumerate and itemize environment counter representations, thus conflicting with what enumitem tries to do.

The enumitem package has a loadonly option, which does not redefine existing list environments (enumerate, itemize, description), but lets you define your own ones (see its documentation). For example:



not only works with galician, but defines a new mydesc environment, behaving like description (except that it is unboxed and has a maximum depth level of 2).


Add the following to the preamble, after loading babel:

  • Could you kindly explain what this is doing? Thanks for the enumitem package btw. I have a similar conflict with enumitem and Spanish in babel. I just want to double check if this solution would be useful, or how to modify it to solve my problem.
