Questions tagged [lists]

{lists} is about list environments. If your question deals with a specific list environment, such as {itemize}, {enumerate}, or {description}, add that tag along with this one. {enumitem} is a popular package for customizing lists. For registers like a "List of figures", use {table-of-contents} instead.
