# How to add bullets to description lists?

I would like to add a bullet in front of every \item[], i.e.

Hello,
\begin{description}
\item[bla] blubb
\end{description}


becomes

Hello,
bla blubb

I quickly found how to remove them from itemize statements, but not the inverse. So, I would like to know how to prepend every description's item label with something.

It would probably be better if you create your own list type using enumitem's \newlist feature.

If you don't want to do so, here's a hack, but it is somehow maintainable: Use the enumitem package and do the following:

\begin{description}[font=$\bullet$\scshape\bfseries]


\begin{document}
\thispagestyle{empty}
\begin{description}
\item [myDescriptionLabel] myItem
\end{description}
\end{document}

• I don't get it what is wrong with itemize? e.g. \begin{itemize} \item one. \item two. \item three. \end{itemize} sharelatex.com/learn/Lists Oct 5, 2021 at 14:48
