Is there a simple way to customize \itemize so that the output indents beginning with the second line similar to that of \descripton?




\item  \lipsum[2]

\item \lipsum[2]

which produces the output for \itemize:

enter image description here

and for \description:

enter image description here

Is there a way to embed the indententation feature of \descripion into \itemize (i) on an as-desired basis; (ii) at once for the entire document (if so desired)?

Thank you.

  • So you want to keep the bullet, but have an additional indent for the remainder of the \item?

    Although about enumerate instead of itemize, the approach described in the following answer should still be applicable to your request: tex.stackexchange.com/a/79939/134144

  • @Werner Yes; to have the new indentation begin on the second line of the itemize output.
