I used itemize code as follows: \begin{itemize} \item \item \item \end{itemize}, and the assoicated results are displayed as: enter image description here

But I want no left indentation about the round point mark. I want the following results which produced in Word editor: enter image description here

Any suggestion will be appreciated.

You can use the enumitem package:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\setlist[itemize]{leftmargin=*}

\begin{document}

\lipsum[2]
\begin{itemize}
\item \lipsum[2]
\item \lipsum[2]
\end{itemize}
\lipsum[2]

\end{document}

enter image description here

To reduce the size of the symbol used (\textbullet), you can use \scalebox from the graphicx package:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\setlist[itemize]{leftmargin=*,label=\scalebox{.8}{\textbullet}}

\begin{document}

\lipsum[2]
\begin{itemize}
\item \lipsum[2]
\item \lipsum[2]
\end{itemize}
\lipsum[2]

\end{document}

    I am so surprised that I got the exact answer in just a minute. Thanks very much! Another question I want to ask is how to change the size of the round point mark.

    Well, it's almost holiday season, so perhaps that might explain why response took a whole minute this time. :-) To answer your question perhaps Reduce size of \bullet character in lists might help. Dec 10, 2012 at 18:00
  • @user22986 I updated my answer providing a possible solution to the new requirement. Dec 10, 2012 at 18:05
  • @PeterGrill the link you provided links to a different question not related to the bullet size. Dec 10, 2012 at 18:06
  • Sorry, looks like I cut and pasted from the wrong tab. Here is the one I was referring to : Reduce size of \bullet character in lists. Dec 10, 2012 at 18:11
