# First list in TikZ Poster is wrongly spaced

When using tikzposter, the first itemize is handled differently, namely the space to the adjacent paragraphs are off:

\documentclass{tikzposter}

\begin{document}
\block{}{
XXXXXXXXXXX
\begin{itemize}
\item XXXXXXXXXXX
\item XXXXXXXXXXX
\end{itemize}
XXXXXXXXXXX
\begin{itemize}
\item XXXXXXXXXXX
\item XXXXXXXXXXX
\end{itemize}
XXXXXXXXXXX
}
\end{document}


Is there a simple way to fix this, except manually adjusting the spacing with whatever happens to be the first list? (I am intending to submit a bug report on this, but given that the package is more or less asleep, I might as well come with a solution or ideally a pull request.)

• \renewcommand{\baselinestretch}{1.25} is seems a simple solution. – ferahfeza Jul 22 '19 at 9:18
• @ferahfeza: Okay, I maybe should have specified that I do not want to tinker with the spacing manually for the first list – which that solution would require me to do unless I misunderstand it. – Wrzlprmft Jul 22 '19 at 9:24

enumitem package can solve this.

\documentclass{tikzposter}

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

\begin{document}
\block{}{
XXXXXXXXXXX
\begin{itemize}
\item XXXXXXXXXXX
\item XXXXXXXXXXX
\end{itemize}
XXXXXXXXXXX
\begin{itemize}
\item XXXXXXXXXXX
\item XXXXXXXXXXX
\end{itemize}
XXXXXXXXXXX
}
\end{document}


• Thank you for your answer. But can enumitem also solve this with a different spacing than a regular linespace? As soon as I change its space settings, the problem reappears. Your example essentially solves the problem by reducing the spacing for other lists to the “wrong” spacing of the first one. – Wrzlprmft Jul 22 '19 at 11:41
