The LaTeX enumerate package

Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

The enumerate package provides an optional argument for the enumerate (numbered list) environment so that you can define the style in which LaTeX prints the counter. Argument parameters include designations for upper and lowercase alphabetic characters, upper and lowercase Roman numerals, and arabic numerals. To use the enumerate package, you must place the entire list in an encapsulated TeX field. Lists may be nested.

How to define a counter style for numbered lists

  1. Add the enumerate package to your document.

  2. Place the insertion point where you want the numbered list to appear.

  3. Enter an encapsulated TeX field.

  4. Type \begin{enumerate}[x] where x is the designation of the counter numbering scheme:

    Scheme Produces
    A uppercase letters (as produced by \Alph)
    a lowercase letters (as produced by \alph)
    I uppercase roman numerals (as produced by \Roman)
    i lowercase roman numerals (as produced by \roman)
    1 arabic numbers (as produced by \arabic)

  5. Choose OK.

  6. For each item in the list:

    1. Enter an encapsulated TeX field.

    2. Type \item text where text is the content of the list item.,

    3. Choose OK.

  7. At the end of the list, enter an encapsulated TeX field.

  8. Type \end{enumerate} and choose OK..

No package options are available for the enumerate package. The package is installed in the TCITeX/TeX/LaTeX/required/tools directory as part of the Standard LaTeX Tools Bundle.
