In LaTeX/Beamer, is it possible to change the margins of an itemize environment halfway through the environment itself? Here's a MWE:

\documentclass[14pt]{beamer}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
  \begin{itemize}
    \item \lipsum[1][1]
    \item \lipsum[1][2]
    \item[] \lipsum[1][4]
  \end{itemize}
\end{frame}

\end{document}

Which produces: enter image description here

What I want is for the third item to line up to the start of the bullets, rather than the start of the text of the previous two items. (I'm aware that I could just end the itemize environment and write the last item as its own paragraph, but there are other reasons why I want to do everything as part of an itemized list.)

Dirty hack:

\documentclass[14pt]{beamer}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
  \begin{itemize}
    \item \lipsum[1][1]
    \item \lipsum[1][2]
    \item[] \hspace{-0.6cm}\parbox{\linewidth}{\lipsum[1][4]}
  \end{itemize}
\end{frame}

\end{document}

  • @campa appromimatly yes (labelsep), but I think in this case a numeric value is easier to finetune Oct 20, 2023 at 10:05
  • Yeah, I've tried it now. Most of my ingenious ideas don't work :-)

  • This is helpful, thank you. I assume there's no way to precisely calculate what the numeric value should be?
