# Can I use parenthesis enumerate item style in beamer

I want to use parenthesis style in enumerate environment in beamer class. Like

(1) text
(2) text


I could do this in article class by using

\begin{enumerate}[label = (\arabic*)]
\item blah
\item blah
\end{enumerate}


But this does not work in beamer class.

What should I do?

• Actually I solved it by put \setbeamertemplate{enumerate items}[default] to preamble and in document using \begin{enuerate}[(1)] ... \end{enumerate} Nov 11 '21 at 7:08

Actually, it works just fine if the enumitem package is loaded.

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{enumitem} % <-- essential
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\begin{enumerate}[label = (\arabic*)]
\item blah
\item blah
\end{enumerate}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

• Oh... I forgot to include that package.. Thanks for reminding me! Nov 11 '21 at 8:49
• @downvoter: Strangely enough, the user Mico has received a negative vote. I'm curious to understand the motivation. Maybe because he was using the beamer class and had answered to my question tex.stackexchange.com/questions/621378/…? Nov 12 '21 at 23:03
