# Adjust itemize horizontal

I am trying to adjust the itemize. I would like to push back the bullet to the left side and here is my code.

item \ressubheading{Project Engineer}{ABB
\begin{itemize}
\resitem{Simulations of future expansions}
\resitem{Technical capability in evaluating transmission}
\end{itemize}


Any help is appreciated.

• What \documentclass are you using? Can you provide a code block that starts with \documentclass and ends with \end{document} that we can copy-and-paste-and-compile in order to replicate your current behaviour?

• To copy pase the whole document might be long, but I am starting as follows \documentclass[letterpaper,12pt]{article} %----------------------------------------------------------- \usepackage[empty]{fullpage} \usepackage{xcolor} \usepackage{tabularx} \definecolor{mygrey}{gray}{0.80} Jan 3, 2019 at 5:46
• Of course. That's why we want something small... or short. We call that a minimal, working example (MWE). Someone landing on this page has no reference as to what \ressubheading is defined as, and therefore wouldn't know how to solve your problem. So, again, create a small document that starts with \documentclass and ends with \end{document} that allows us to copy-and-paste-and-compile the code and see exactly the issue that you're facing.

• Which package defines the macros \ressubheading and \resitem?

Since no MWE was provided, I assumed ur \resitem was similar to \item...
Maybe you could try using the enumitem package which allows customization of a list environment. In general, the bullet could be shifted right by adjusting ur leftmargin of your itemize environment:

\begin{itemize}[leftmargin=*]
\item one
\item two
\item three
\end{itemize}


The MWE was as below:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}
\noindent Default margin:
\begin{itemize}
\item one
\item two
\item three
\end{itemize}

\noindent Adjusted margin:
\begin{itemize}[leftmargin=*]
\item one
\item two
\item three
\end{itemize}

\end{document}
