I want to format all my (enumitem-based) lists so that they all look like this:

    \item (...)

However, I'd like to skip the explicit configuration everytime I create a list. Is there a way to set these values as default throughout the document? Would there be issues in nested lists?

    See the \setlist command in the documentation. – Ulrike Fischer Jan 28 at 16:06
  • There should not be an issue with nested lists, as long as you define them accordingly (like using label*, say, for enumerate to use parent-level enumeration). – Werner Jan 28 at 16:10



The use of <list> and <level> is optional. See section 5 Global Settings of the enumitem documentation.
