## enumeration

 I apologize for this, which is really an amstex or latex question.  I recall once seeing an answer (somewhere) and can’t find it now. In the amsarticle document style as presently constituted, when you start a list with  \begin{enumerate} \item… the numer of the (first) item gets printed as "(1)";  it used to print as “1.”.   The former, “(1)”, drives me crazy.  The latter, “1.”,  is what all the “tutorials” online assume happens. I think I once saw a way to change this back by putting an option into the  document style, or perhaps via some other universal command, but can’t find it now.   I tried a local command, that is, beginning my environment with \begin{enumerate}[label=\arabic*.] and got the error message ./135F20HW1.tex:73: Missing number, treated as zero.                      \c@*  l.73 \begin{enumerate}[label=\arabic*.] So how do I restore the old way with a single universal command in the preamble, so I don’t have to change things every time I use the enumerate environment?

## Re: enumeration

 Thank you for the suggestion.  The first version works;  when I put \usepackage[shortlabels]{enumitem} in the preamble, I get the error message /usr/local/texlive/2017/texmf-dist/tex/latex/enumitem/enumitem.sty:1426: LaTeX  Error: Command \setlist already defined.                Or name \end... illegal, see p.192 of the manual. See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation. Type  H  for immediate help.  ...                                                                                                  l.1426 ...ar{\enit@setlist\@ne}{\enit@setlist\z@}}                                                    But this is no issue for me;  I can certainly use the first solution. But I was hoping for a way to override the parentheses format, which I think is created by the amsarticle documentstyle, for all enumerations of lists with a single  command (or setting a parameter) in the preamble. In any case, I have a workaround if necessary.  Thanks again.

## Re: enumeration

 Hi Zbigniew, In amsclass.pdf (in terminal put "texdoc amsclass"), page 34, it says that you could redefine "\labelenumi" if you want a period after the number. Hope it helps.

 In reply to this post by Nitecki, Zbigniew H.
