\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumerate}

\begin{document}
    \begin{enumerate}[1)]
        \item aaa 
        \item bbb
        \item [2\textit{bis})] ccc
        \item ddd
        \item eee
        \item fff
        \item [5\textit{bis})] ggg
        \item [5\textit{ter})] hhh
    \end{enumerate}
\end{document}

How can I align 2bis, 5bis, and 5ter items with the other numbers?

  • By "align", do you mean "left-align"? (Right now the numerals are right-aligned.)

So far your items' labels are right aligned, Do you like to have left aligned? With use of the enumitem package you can simple left align items' labels with option align=left:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}
    \begin{enumerate}[leftmargin=*, label=\arabic*), widest=7bis), align=left]
        \item aaa
        \item bbb
        \item [2\textit{bis})] ccc
        \item ddd
        \item eee
        \item fff
        \item [5\textit{bis})] ggg
        \item [5\textit{ter})] hhh
    \end{enumerate}
\end{document}

enter image description here

If you drop widest=... from enumerate options, than you will get:

  • Thanks, the last one is what I wanted. I have also added the option labelindent=(length) to have the full list of items not aligned with relation to the text above and below.
