Summary

In this chapter, we got to know a new way to structure our text—lists. Specifically, we learned to create:

  • Bulleted lists using the itemize environment
  • Numbered lists using the enumerate environment
  • Definition lists using the description environment

Furthermore, we worked with compact versions of such lists provided by the packages paralist and enumitem. Those packages allowed us to customize our lists at will.

You may regard those lists as an additional possibility to structure your text. Use it to clarify your ideas. Though you may design the layout of lists as you wish, it's highly recommended to use the same bullets and numbering scheme respectively for the same nesting level.
