I want to get the QED symbol at the right end of the proof without using the proof environment and I want the QED symbol inside \begin{itemize}... \end{\itemize} environment. Is it possible? Thanks you,

  • By "proof bullet", do you mean the open-square symbol that's generated at the end of a proof environment? Please advise.

  • @egreg because I want the proof itemized like (a) Proof of integral..... (b) Example..... (c) Related integral. Having the proof environment gives me hard time Commented Aug 9, 2023 at 21:31

I want to get the [QED symbol] at the right [hand] end of the proof without using the proof environment. ... I want the [QED symbol] inside an itemize environment.

Something like this?

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsthm} % for \qedsymbol macro
\usepackage{lipsum} % filler text

\begin{document}

\begin{itemize}
\item \lipsum[1][1-5] \hfill\qedsymbol
\item \lipsum[2][1-4] \hfill\qedsymbol
\end{itemize}

\end{document}

  • I just added the package and typed \hfill\qedsymbol at the end of the proof and turned out perfect. Thank you Commented Aug 9, 2023 at 21:33
  • Package amsthm also offers the qedhere macro

  • @user94293 - I don't think that \qedhere is usable outside a proof environment -- and inside an itemize or enumerate environment.
