# Reduce spacing between items [duplicate]

Vertical space in lists

Please, how can I reduce spacing between items ?

\begin{itemize}

\item[\textbullet]  first
\item[\textbullet]  second
\item[\textbullet] third

\end{itemize}


You could use the enumitem package and set the itemsep parameter to some suitable value. E.g., to have no extra spacing between items (whether bulleted, enumerated, or otherwise styled), you'd type
\setlist{itemsep=0pt}

after issuing the \usepackage{enumitem} statement.
• @researcher - I'm not sure what you mean by "the item on the left": by default, the items are organized in a vertical list. Please consult the manual of the enumitem package (available by typing "texdoc enumitem" at a command line) to learn more about the extensive customization options that this package offers. Alternatively, you could post a new question, with a full minimum working example and not just a code snippet, to inquire about the issue you're trying to solve. – Mico Sep 9 '12 at 10:24
