# enumitem-shortlabels: How to change the counter of items? [duplicate]

I use the enumitem package with shortlabels.

\usepackage[shortlabels]{enumitem}


Now I've got

\begin{enumerate}[(L 1)]
\item blablabla
\item blablabla
\end{enumerate}


and it goes like (L 1), (L 2) etc.

However I'd like it starts with 0. But the setcounter{item}{-1} doesn't work here. What to do?

• Try: \setcounter{enumi}{-1} – Marco Daniel Feb 24 '13 at 8:23
