# enumerate* - indent issue with next line item

I am trying to create a list that would look like:

Awards: 1. Award A
2. Award B


I have used the \usepackage[inline]{enumitem} but the result I am getting is the following:

Awards: 1. Award A
2. Award B


Any ideas on how I can fix that?

The code I have written is:

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[a4paper, total={6in, 10in}]{geometry}
\usepackage[USenglish]{babel}
\usepackage[inline]{enumitem}
\usepackage{currvita}
\newcommand*{\ac}[1]{\mbox{#1}}
\tolerance=600
\begin{document}
\item \textbf{\textit{Awards:}}
\begin{enumerate*}
\item Award A\\
\item Award B
\end{enumerate*}
\end{document}


• Welcome to TeX SX! Did you use the enumerate* environment (with a star)? – Bernard Oct 24 at 11:14
• Dear @Bernard, yes! To be more precise here is my code: \begin{enumerate*} \item My first in list.\\ \item My second in list. \end{enumerate*} – meletkis Oct 24 at 11:15
• Please post a short compilable code reproducing the problem. – Bernard Oct 24 at 11:17
• @Bernard \textbf{\textit{Awards:}} \begin{enumerate*} \item My first in list.\\ \item My second in list. \end{enumerate*} – meletkis Oct 24 at 11:20
• @Bernard I added the code in the original post. I hope that helps. Let me know if you need anything else. Thank you! – meletkis Oct 24 at 11:39

Using a KOMA-script class, not so complicated:

\documentclass{scrartcl}
\usepackage{paralist}

\begin{document}

\begin{labeling}{Award:}
\item[Award:] a. Award A
\begin{enumerate}[b.]
\item Award B
\end{enumerate}

\end{labeling}

\end{document}


I would place an enumerate list in a minipage. enumerate* formats the list as inline. (replace 0.5\linewidth by something more useful in your full code)

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper]{article}
\begin{document}
\textbf{\textit{Awards:}}
\begin{minipage}[t]{0.5\linewidth}
\begin{enumerate}
\item Award A
\item Award B
\end{enumerate}
\end{minipage}
\end{document}

• Thank you! It works! The question now is, how I can reduce the vertical space between the list items to the default? – meletkis Oct 24 at 13:02

maybe it works

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[a4paper, total={6in, 10in}]{geometry}
\usepackage[USenglish]{babel}
\usepackage[inline]{enumitem}
\usepackage{currvita}
\tolerance=600
\begin{document}
\textbf{\textit{Awards:}}\begin{minipage}[t][][t]{0.7\textwidth}
\begin{enumerate}
\item Award A
\item Award B
\end{enumerate}
\end{minipage}
\end{document}
