As long as you only want the circles in a limited size range \documentclass{article} \begin{document} zzz \begin{picture}(8,8) \put(5,3){\circle{5}} \end{picture} zzz \begin{picture}(8,8) \put(5,3){\circle*{5}} \end{picture} zzz \begin{picture}(8,8) \put(1,1){\framebox(5,5){}} \end{picture} zzz \end{document}

\documentclass{article} \usepackage{bbding,enumitem} \begin{document} \begin{itemize}[label=\CheckmarkBold] \item Correct answer. \item Also correct \item[\XSolidBrush] Not correct answer. \end{itemize} \end{document} The spacing and gaps can be tuned with the enumitem options (text margin shown for clarity): \documentclass{article} \usepackage{bbding,...

Here is my suggestion. As already mentioned in the comments, the items are already vertically aligned. Therefore, my answer focuses on solving the second issue. Since there was no definition of \tabitem given in the question and since you are not satisfied with the missing indentation of the second and following lines of the items, I have included an ...

I'd recommend Stephen's approach, but if you really wanted an alternative, some parboxes may work, too: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{bbding} % Symbols \usepackage{calc} % Arithmetic with lengths \usepackage[showframe]{geometry} % only to show the margins \usepackage{mwe} % For this example MWE \newcommand{\...

If you insist on not using itemize or enumerate, I suggest using tabular or tabularx: \noindent\begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{p{1em}X} \mycheckmark{} & my text\\ \mycheckmark{} & more text \end{tabularx} You might want to fiddle with the width of the first column, depending on what you pick for your check mark.

I admire your courage and patience in drawing step by step, rectangles and circles using bezier curves. If you have been able to do this, you may be interested to know that TikZ has planned to do all these calculations automatically. For this purpose TikZ has created what is called a node. A node is a circular, rectangular or other shape containing text. ...

I think you're better off using a tabular-type setup instead of an itemize setup. The answer shown below employs a tabularx environment of overall width \textwidth; the width of the second column is computed by LaTeX as the residual. The tabularx environments are constructed twice below -- the first time with leading text bullets, the second time without. ...

Your table is to wide, and you have to reduce left margin (or do other thing). I also removed the side bearing (@{}) of the columns to improve spacing. Since complicated code was no issue, I have streamlined the code by defining short-hands, but I focused on simple code to make it better understandable since you are new to LaTeX In principle, what you do is ...

Try the following: \documentclass[journal,article,submit,moreauthors,pdftex,10pt,a4paper]{Definitions/mdpi} \newcommand*{\textoverline}[1]{$\overline{\hbox{#1}}$} % simplified % \usepackage{ragged2e} \usepackage{booktabs, makecell, tabularx} \newcolumntype{L}{>{\RaggedRight}X} \renewcommand\theadfont{\bfseries\normalsize} \usepackage{enumitem} \begin{...

The label change can be done, e.g., by loading the package with required square symbol and applying this symbol. The package name is bbding and the symbol name \SquareCastShadowBottomRight (see the code snippet below marked by Q1). But there is a conflict with the package marvosym used in your code (the \Cross command is defined in both packages). Therefore, ...

\documentclass{article} \usepackage{pifont} \begin{document} Here is text before the itemize\\ and now for the itemize \begin{itemize} \item[\ding{168}] And we begin \item[$\diamondsuit$] Here is text \item[$\heartsuit$] blah blah \item[\ding{171}] Sandia \end{itemize} \end{document}

I propose another solution, defining a new environment based on description, with the help of package eqparbox: \documentclass{book} \usepackage{etoolbox} \usepackage{eqparbox} \usepackage{enumitem} \newenvironment{mynomencl}{% \renewcommand*\descriptionlabel[1]{% \hspace\labelsep \eqmakebox[DL][l]{\textbullet\quad ##1}}\description[font=\normalfont, ...

With description environment, using enumitem: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{enumitem} \begin{document} \begin{description}[font=\normalfont\textbullet\space,%https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/149187/ leftmargin=6em, labelsep=0em, labelwidth=6em] \item[$p_{3}(\lambda)$:] is the spectrally resolved power density after ...

Well, you can use environment itemize with some options, because you called already enumitem like this: \begin{itemize}[% <===================================================== noitemsep,nosep, leftmargin=0pt, labelsep=2pt, itemindent=0pt, labelwidth=* ] An better result you would get with the following lines, but then you get an odd warning ...

You can use the \usebeamertemplate{} macro. In your case: \usebeamertemplate{itemize item} \usebeamertemplate{itemize subitem} \usebeamertemplate{itemize subsubitem} If you also wish to use their pre-defined colors, you can write {\usebeamercolor[fg]{itemize item}\usebeamertemplate{itemize item}} and similarly for subitem and subsubitem. Note the ...

Let me essentially repeat my earlier answer here. Let me mention that there is a is the package overlay-beamer-styles which is precisely made for this situation. It spares you from overpainting things and prevents jumps. You only need to say \node[box,highlight on=<1>](B1){$\mathsf{C}(\mathsf{s})$}; to highlight the C node on the first slide. \...

Here is a solution with itemize parameters set with enumitem: \documentclass[12pt]{article} \usepackage[margin=1in, showframe]{geometry} \usepackage{marvosym} \usepackage{tikz} \usepackage{blindtext} \usepackage{apacite} \usepackage{tabto} \usepackage{bibentry} \usepackage{enumitem} \setlist[itemize]{wide = 1em, nosep} \usepackage{xcolor} \usepackage{...
